Brisbane Roar have bolstered their midfield options with the signing of Jacob Pepper on a one-year A-League deal.

Pepper, 24, played 85 games across six seasons for Newcastle and Western Sydney but was released by the Wanderers at the end of the last campaign.

He will add depth to the Roar's midfield following the departures of Steven Lustica and Javi Hervas and will likely serve as the back-up to veteran Spanish anchorman Corona.
