“They are all excellent young players with a great deal of potential,” Sky Blues boss Steve Corica said.

“They’ve each performed very well in pre-season and during their record breaking NPL season.


“We’ve got a fantastic crop of young players and it was tough to pick just three for these contracts. 

“With increased exposure to A-League training loads and physicality, I believe these boys can make the step up.”

Van Der Saag will already be known to Sydney FC fans after his dream debut in the club's high-profile friendly against French champions PSG.

After an illness swept through the camp in China, the versatile youngster started at right-back and marked-up against FIFA World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe.

Attacking midfielder Tilio was part of the Young Socceroos side which recently took out the AFF Under-18 Championship, scoring a hat-trick in the big win over Vietnam.

Teague, the youngest of the trio, is a brilliant holding midfielder who has captained Australia's Joeys for a number of years.
