Roar set for a shake of Pepper

Former Newcastle Jets and Western Sydney Wanderers midfielder Jacob Pepper will reportedly sign with Brisbane Roar pending results of a medical undertaken on Thursday.

Pepper, 24, has made a cumulative total of 85 Hyundai A-League appearances.

The Newcastle product joined the Wanderers last year but was recently released one year into his two-year deal.

Pepper is also an Under-23 international.

Fox Sports reports that provided Pepper passed his medical on Thursday, he will sign with the Roar and will report for the start of pre-season training under John Aloisi on Monday.
