Jets sign former Socceroo Kasey Wehrman

April 7, 2010

Newcastle Jets have announced their third new A-League signing in a week with the capture of former Socceroos midfielder Kasey Wehrman.

The 32-year-old will return to Australia to link up with the Jets on a two-year deal after almost a decade playing in Norway.

Wehrman's signing continues a busy off-season recruitment drive by the Jets, who have also recruited former Sydney FC midfielder Ruben Zadkovich and New Zealand international Jeremy Brockie.

Hailing from north-west Queensland, Wehrman played for Australia at youth level and made 12 appearances for the Socceroos, his last coming in a friendly against Ghana in London in 2006.

"Naturally we're thrilled to announce that were bringing Kasey into the club from next season," Jets chief executive John Tsatsimas said.

"The level of experience and quality that he possesses is without question and there is no doubt that he is the kind of player that our young squad can learn from.

"Kasey is the third new signing for the club within the space of a week, so certainly we're excited about the forthcoming season."

Wehrman, who played with Brisbane Strikers and Perth in the old NSL before stints at Moss, Lillestrom, Fredrikstad and Lyn, will link up with his new teammates when pre-season training starts in May.
