Newcastle Jets officially announce Payne signing

Newcastle Jets today officially announced the capture of promising striker Chris Payne from North Queensland Fury.

The Gosford-born 20-year old has signed a two-year deal with the club which will begin at the start of next season and he was delighted to be stepping into a club on the up.

"The Jets have definitely impressed a lot of people in the past couple of months and I'm excited about being a part of the squad next year," Payne said today.

"The club is obviously heading in a great direction and I'm looking forward to contributing.

"For now I want to give my best to the Fury and help my teammates to some good results for the rest of this season."

Payne kicked off his A-League career with Sydney FC in 2008 and since then has notched up 28 matches in Australia's top flight.
