It may be recalled that earlier this month, Bolt had finished his football trial at Central Coast Mariners in Australia abruptly and was planning to leave the club after failing to agree on commercial conditions.
Recently Bolt had said that he may give up on his dream of becoming a professional footballer despite having "a lot of offers" and added that he will make a decision on his future by the end of November.
"I have received offers from many clubs. I will make a decision at the end of November. Either I will continue or I will end my dreams. This is not about money. This is my dream," he had said.
The champion sprinter is also rumoured to join the Jamaican national team for trials with FA chief Michael Ricketts urging him to sign for a club in his homeland.
