The 32-year-old, who was on trial at Central Coastal Mariners earlier this year but could not agree on a contract with the Australian A-League side, is currently considering a number of offers.

One of them comes from Turkish Super Lig side Sivasspor, according to Turkey's TRT television network.

"With the Central Coast, we couldn't work out the contract stuff so that's dead, but I've got a lot of offers from other clubs out there," Bolt said last week, as quoted by AS.

"Now we're just trying to figure out what (to do). We'll make a decision before the end of November if I'm going to go to another club or call it actually quits."

At Sivasspor, Bolt could link up with former Real Madrid winger Robinho and face Mzansi's Tshabalala when his side Erzurumspor meet the Jamaican's potential new club in February next year.

Bolt reportedly also has offers from Mexican side Dorados de Sinaloa, who are coached by Argentina legend Diego Maradona.
