The Wellington Phoenix have signed an academy graduate.

18-year-old striker Ben Waine, who played three games last season, has signed a two year deal with the A-League football club.

Waine's at school today so can't talk about it, but coach Ufuk Talay says he's a good signing.

He says Waine is a good, young, talented player who has shown great potential and brings them depth.

Fellow under-20 footballer Gianni Stensness has turned down a deal with the club.
