Brooks and Kirdar re-sign with Victory

Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce promising young players Lleyton Brooks and Birkan Kirdar have re-signed with the Club.

Brooks has inked a new one-year scholarship contract, while Kirdar has put pen to paper on a two-year deal. 
 
“I’m really enjoying playing my football at Victory, I’ve been part of the men’s program for a couple of seasons now so to get a number of starts this season has been really rewarding,” Brooks said.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season in navy blue, scoring two goals - including a last minute equaliser against Melbourne City. 
 
“I know if I keep putting in the hard-work I give myself every opportunity to get more minutes on the pitch.
 
“Having had a taste of playing and scoring at the elite level only drives me to help the Club improve next season.”

Kirdar, who has already made 19 appearances for Victory, also expressed his delight at extending his contract. 
 
“It’s fantastic to have signed with the Club for another two years,” Kirdar said.
 
“Victory have supported me from the very beginning. I’m looking to repay the faith they have shown in me and help us win games of football for the members and fans.
 
“Over the past two seasons I feel like I’ve been learning and improving with each game, I know I have plenty of hard work ahead, but I couldn’t be happier and more motivated to help this Club get back to winning ways.”
