Brisbane Roar has secured the services of three of the club-s promising young footballers.
Devante Clut, who marked his senior debut against Wellington Phoenix last month with a stunning volley, has signed a two-year Hyundai A-League contract while Brandon Borrello and Patrick Theodore join Ben Litfin as the club-s full-time youth league players.
All three teenagers are regulars in the club-s Foxtel National Youth League team with Borrello and Theodore also making their senior debuts for the Roar earlier in the current 2013/14 campaign.
“To have Devante, Brandon and Patrick commit to Brisbane Roar is fantastic,” Head Coach Mike Mulvey said.
“Devante has been rewarded for months of hard work and he proved he-s up to the task of A-League football with his performance and goal last month.
“These contracts were finalised in recent weeks and it was great to see the boost it gave Devante against Wellington.
“Brandon and Patrick are two attacking-minded young players with a lot of talent and we look forward to seeing them further develop their skills here at the club.”
Sydney-born Clut, who was a finalist in Nike-s television competition The Chance in 2012, joined Brisbane in the off-season while Borrello and Theodore are products of the club-s youth set-up.
