The 21-year-old centre-back has made 38 Hyundai A-League appearances for Victory since making his debut in November 2015.

Deng also spent a year on loan at Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven.

The Kenya-born defender was rewarded for impressive club form with a Caltex Socceroos cap against Kuwait last week.

He came on as a second-half substitute in a 4-0 friendly win that served as important preparation for the AFC Asian Cup 2019.
