Defender Ljubo Milicevic is on the verge of signing a new deal with the Newcastle Jets.
“I have advised my management, my brother Steve and manager Buddy Farah, to speak to the club,” Milicevic said.
“When I originally signed it was for peanuts and I think I have proven to everyone that I am back where I want to be. I still have ambition to play for a big club in Europe but I don’t want to leave Newcastle just for the sake of leaving.
“I am happy in Newcastle. I live on the beach; I’m learning to surf; I have made some good friends; I’m keeping it real; I enjoy it here.
“It’s calm and relaxing and I can focus on my football.”
