Defender Taylor Regan has signed a two-year extension with A-League club Newcastle.
The 23-year-old's upgraded deal will see him remain at the Jets until the end of 2013-14 season.
A former Newcastle youth team captain, Regan was delighted to re-sign with his local club.
"I have grown up in Newcastle, I love Newcastle and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else," Regan said.
"I have been able to get more game time this season and I am enjoying playing under (coach) Gary van Egmond."
The Jets mentor was thrilled to keep Regan at Newcastle.
"I love what Taylor brings to the team and his communication in particular is outstanding," van Egmond said.
"Taylor also embodies everything Newcastle, he loves the club and the town ... he has always been a Jets and Knights supporter."
