Trent Sainsbury: Reportedly close to Bolton deal

According to sources in Australia, Central Coast Mariners have accepted an offer of £350,000 for the 21-year-old, who played a key role in helping the Mariners clinch the A-League Premiership this season.

Southampton are also interested in the defender's services but were only willing to offer a trial before committing to a permanent deal.

Club chairman Peter Turnbull confirmed that the Aussie youth international is almost certain to leave the A-League after his performances this term.

"We've had a couple of enquiries about Trent, but I think everyone needs to remember that Marco Rojas, the player of the year, has left Melbourne Victory, and Terry Antonis has left Sydney FC," he said in the Illawara Mercury.

"Trent is under contract for next season but there's been some solid expressions of interest from overseas clubs.

"It's just a fact of life, and given we're the club who produce the most young players, we're the ones who get most of the enquiries."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
