Usain Bolt has been desperately trying to earn a contract at Central Coast Mariners while on trial but reports have emerged saying that the world's fastest man has a two-year contract on the table from a European club.

Managing director Ghasston Slimen told ESPN: "A champion is always welcome and at Valletta FC we believe nothing is impossible".

Usain Bolt's new career in football/soccer is about to take off big.

"This isn't about money, this is about history".

The attacking midfielder, who won 100 caps for the national side, has for years been Turkey's best known footballer and is a strong supporter of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

When the club's new backers confirmed the deal, they spoke of their Champions League aspirations for Valletta and how they plan to recruit a number of "high-quality signings" in the coming months.

Valletta FC are the reigning Maltese champions and are flush with cash after being recently taken over by Sanban.

Gallop said there was no chance of using the marquee fund to meet Bolt's contract demands as its goal was to attract proven world-class players.

The eight-time gold medallist reacted with surprise after receiving a notice for a drugs test on Monday, just days after scoring his first goals in a friendly for the club.

Koch's co-host Mark Berretta had revealed a story about a European club's interest in the football convert as he awaits a contract offer from Central Coast Mariners.

That's two goals tonight for @usainbolt!

Bolt's trial period with the A-League club came to an end at the weekend and the Mariners now have to decide whether to offer the Jamaican a permanent deal, a further trial period or release him.

Should the Mariners sign Bolt, the FFA will consider ways to contribute off-field cash in the form of marketing arrangements and facilitating third-party sponsorships.

"The ball is very much in the Mariners court".

"If they get to that [signing] point then we'll look at what's feasible for us but it can't be for the marquee player fund", he said.

The Mariners have been reluctant to race to a decision on the 32-year-old, and were still adopting a wait and see approach one week out from the start of the A-League.
