The Newcastle Jets have continued efforts to bolster their squad for their upcoming Asian Champions League campaign, signing Italian forward Fabio Vignaroli.

The 32-year-old, who has played with several clubs in Italy's top league, Serie A, was signed on a six-month contract.

"The greatest attribute that Fabio brings to our club is a tremendous amount of experience in one of the biggest and most competitive leagues in the world," Jets chief executive John Tsatsimas said.

The signing continues the Jets' attempts to strengthen their squad for the Asian competition.

They have also recently signed Australians Sasho Petrovski, Ljubo Milicevic and Nikolai Topor-Stanley and Dutch striker Donny de Groot.

"We believe that our signings over this past week, Fabio very much included, will see us enter the Champions League with positive energy and forward momentum," Tsatsimas said.

Newcastle, who qualified for Asia by winning the A-League championship last season, were wooden spooners this season.

They have also been hurt by the loss of several players including Joel Griffiths, James Holland, Jade North and Mark Milligan to overseas clubs.
