Urawa Reds nab Nabbout

Newcastle Jets have been dealt a huge blow to their title aspirations with leading goal scorer Andrew Nabbout securing a two-year-deal with Japanese outfit Urawa Red Diamonds. Nabbout has been a standout player in Newcastle’s season which has seen them go from wooden spooners being a few matches away from qualifying for the Asian Champions League.

Nabbout signed for the club from the Malaysian Premier League for the 2016-17 season and finished as the team’s top scorer with eight. The former Melbourne Victory man has continued that form this season and leaves the club after scoring the winning goal in their 2-1 win over Sydney FC. To celebrate his time at the club let’s take a look at some of his stats.

Nabbout in 2017-18

  • 22 matches
  • 10 goals (5th in the league)
  • 7 assists (5th in the league)
  • 16 chances created

  • 32 shots on target

Nabbout at Newcastle
