Attacker Mario Shabow has inked a deal to move to the Central Coast Mariners from the Newcastle Jets.

Shabow has signed a two-year deal with the Mariners to join Andrew Hoole, Connor Pain, Corey Gameiro and Matt Simon in attack.

Head Coach Mike Mulvey says Shabow has the talent to be a successful player.

"I look forward to seeing how he makes the most of this opportunity," Mulvey said in a statement on Thursday.

The 20-year-old made his A-League debut in 2016 with the Western Sydney Wanderers before joining the Jets at the start of the 2017/18 season.

The Jets and the 20-year-old agreed to terminate his contract ahead of his final year with the club, Newcastle said in a statement.

“I’m really excited to get started at the Mariners,” Shabow said. “It was a tough season for me in regards to game time, so I am so motivated to get out there and show everyone what I’m capable of.

“This is a new challenge for me and that’s what I’m looking forward to. I want to work hard at training, be a consistent starting player and do everything I can to take the team forward.

"I’ve heard so many good things about the club and the Central Coast so I can’t wait to get there and meet all the boys.

“I’m ambitious, I’m very hard working and, most importantly, I’m a winner.”
