Mariners are Mooy interested in Bosnar

Central Coast Mariners are in the market for several players but have denied Western Sydney Wanderers midfielder Aaron Mooy is one of their targets.

The Mariners have lost defender Trent Sainsbury and striker Daniel McBreen to overseas clubs in the past few days.

Midfielder Michael McGlinchey also recently departed for Japan and number 10 Marcos Flores is ruled out for the season with injury.

The reigning A-League champions recently passed up the chance to sign Japanese midfielder Yukihiro Yamase who trialled with the club, but brought back forward Bernie Ibini-Isei in December.

Meanwhile the Mariners are poised to officially announce the capture of experienced centre back Eddy Bosnar but are still in the market for a few players.

One is believed to be an Asian attacking midfielder who has played recently in the J.League Division 2.

A Mariners spokesperson said the club is close to a few signings but Socceroo Mooy is not one of them.

The 23-year old, who is believed to be unsettled at the Wanderers, has also been linked with moves to the Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Heart.

FourFourTwo understands the Mariners could take youngsters Jarrod Kyle and Rhys Saunders on trial next week.

Kyle is a former Sydney FC striker, who spent time at Sheffield Wednesday’s academy, while Saunders plays for Gold Coast club Magic United.
