The Jets, who were knocked out of the A-League finals by Wellington last week, finished the regular campaign in sixth spot.

Tsatsimas revealed the club hoped a busy off-season could see them improve next term.

"The plan of attack is find out where the weaknesses are, determine the players we want to target, what the timeframe is, who is available and go from there," Tsatsimas told the Newcastle Herald.

The Jets have also been busy re-signing key players with only Ali Abbas and Ljubo Milicevic as regulars from this season yet to be secured for the 2010/2011 campaign.

Tsatsimas claimed: "We signed most of the people we wanted to retain early on."

The Jets chief executive went onto add a deal with Abbas was close and could be finalised early next week.

"The terms - the money and the duration - are essentially done. There are a couple of finer details to work out, but everything is pretty much agreed to," he said.

Abbas' agent, Vlado Bozinoski, revealed: "Ali is happy there. He is starting to enjoy his game and people can see that as well.

"Unless something drastic happens, he will be there. Hopefully by the middle of next week it should be all done."
