Midfielder Terry Antonis has earned a new deal with Sydney FC, just after suffering an international setback.

The 20-year-old, who has been one of the stand-out players in the unbeaten Sky Blues side this season, has committed himself to the club for two more years.

I believe Terry is well on his way to becoming one of Australia’s top midfielders.

His new deal comes in the wake of his disappointment in missing out on a recall to the Australia side, who areĀ 3.25 to win the 2015 Asian Cup.

Antonis, who has starred in the centre of midfield alongside Milos Dimitrijevic this season, had been called up for the Socceroos’ trip to Japan.

But he suffered minor head and neck injuries in a car crash on his way to the airport and was withdrawn from the squad.

Antonis is set to return against Melbourne City on Saturday, having had to sit out last weekend’s Big Blue clash with Melbourne Victory as he was ineligible despite being fit enough to play.

Sydney FC areĀ 3.00 to beat Melbourne City, who are 2.30, with the draw 3.40.

He said: “I was devastated after what happened, but I was just worried and focusing on myself and my health and getting back on the pitch. Now it’s time to move on and keep playing, get ready for the next game.”

Coach Graham Arnold is delighted to have re-signed the youngster, saying: “As the biggest club in the country we need to have the best players and I believe Terry is well on his way to becoming one of Australia’s top midfielders.”

City, meanwhile, have extended midfielder Liam Miller’s deal until the end of the year.

The former Brisbane Roar star signed for the club last week on a short-term national team replacement player deal, making his debut in the 2-2 draw against Central Coast Mariners.
