Adelaide United has secured the services of Young Socceroos defender Daniel Mullen for a further two years.

The 19-year-old inked a new deal with the club on Wednesday that will see him remain with the Reds until the end of the 2010/11 season.

Mullen was a surprise choice when he started against Uzbekistan's Bunyodkor in the Asian Champions League semi-final first leg at Hindmarsh Stadium in October but the son of former Adelaide City legend and current United youth team coach Joe Mullen showed he was not overawed by the big occasion.

Mullen was a member of the Young Socceroos team which qualified for next year's FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.

His signature comes just days after Adelaide secured Sydney FC defender Iain Fyfe on a three-year deal.

Adelaide faces Newcastle Jets at EnergyAustralia Stadium on Sunday.
