Newcastle's Griffiths not for sale

Newcastle Jets have insisted that star player Joel Griffiths is not for sale despite a $1million bid from Chinese club Beijing Guoan. Jets chief executive John Tsatsimas confirmed the club had rejected the offer this week.

"He's a Newcastle Jets contracted player. We want him here. He's our talisman, he's our captain, he's our marquee player," Tsatsimas said.

"Our chairman's indicated he's trying to form a team with Joel as its apex.

"He'll be here for the Asian Champions League."
