Sainsbury backed for Saints move
9:30am Friday 26th April 2013 in Sport
FORMER Dell star Robbie Slater is backing fellow Aussie Trent Sainsbury to sign for Saints.
The Daily Echo recently reported how Saints were tracking the centre half, who has just helped Central Coast Mariners win his country’s A League title.
Championship promotion hopefuls Bolton are also keen, and Sainsbury has hinted at moving this summer.
“I've had one good season. It doesn’t mean I’ve had a great career as of yet,” the Perth-born player said yesterday. “I've still got to pay my dues, and I’ve got to work hard. I've got a lot of ambitions, and definitely one of them will be (joining) an overseas club.”
A Mariners spokesperson yesterday said Sainsbury’s agent had been in contact with Saints and Bolton, but that the reported transfer fee of around £350,000 was “speculative and not accurate yet”.
“Trent could go there. Playing in the Premiership is a big incentive for any player. I will always be a Southampton supporter because I had a great time there and made a lot of friends.”
