The Hunter has been a fruitful recruiting field for the red and black

Western Sydney Wanderers are keen to complete a second raid of the Hunter Valley as they target Newcastle Jets youth league coach Labinot Haliti.

The Covert Agent can reveal the Wanderers want to install Haliti as an assistant coach after a hugely impressive debut campaign in charge of the Jets junior team.

It would be the second Jets asset to head south to Bankwest Stadium with the red and black already signing full-back Daniel Georgievski for next season.

Haliti is still travelling from Sydney to Newcastle for training and matches, with a move to the Wanderers making sense for logistical reasons.

The 33-year-old began his career at the Jets, where he enjoyed three stints, but was also an inaugural player for the Wanderers, scoring 11 goals in 81 matches.
