The Jets said Brillante, 21, will travel to Italy this weekend to finalise his move.

"I've had an amazing couple of years at the Jets and I'm very thankful that I came to a club like Newcastle who develop young players and give them an opportunity," Brillante saud.

"Having the chance to play regular first team football has helped my game improve a lot and it is a big reason why I've been able to achieve things like playing for the Australian national team."

Brillante was named the Jets Player of the Year for the 2013/14 campaign, having starred as a central midfielder and right back.

His club performances earned him a call-up to the Socceroos' 30-man preliminary squad for this year's FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
