Sydney FC are set to unveil young striker Jarrod Kyle as their latest signing on Wednesday morning.
In a timely boost to the Sky Blues’ top six hopes, the 19-year-old will see out the season with Sydney and could come straight into the squad for Saturday night’s crucial home clash with Adelaide.
Kyle has spent the last three seasons on the books of English Championship club Sheffield Wednesday, playing with the club’s academy team.
Despite being named the Owls’ academy Player of the year last season, he failed to secure any first team opportunities this season and decided to look for opportunities elsewhere.
The Gold Coast youngster has spent the past week trialling with the Sky Blues and has impressed coach Frank Farina enough to secure a deal with the two-time A-League champions.
News of Kyle’s signing comes just a day after the club decided to release former Socceroos midfielder Jason Culina following his bust-up with Farina at training last week.
Kyle will add much needed depth to Sydney FC’s attack, which is still without the suspended Joel Griffiths for another week.
