Usain Bolt has been offered a contract by A-League club Central Coast Mariners, the Jamaican's management team have confirmed.

The former athletics star has been training with the Australian club since August and scored twice in a pre-season match this month.

The eight-time Olympic champion then rejected an offer to join Maltese champions Valetta despite uncertainty over whether the Mariners would try to sign him.
