UK football club, Sunderland, are close to signing 20-year-old Greek Australian defender and Central Coast Mariners player, Nectarios Triantis.

According to beinsportsSunderland are understood to have beat an array of rivals to land the highly-rated defender for a transfer fee of around $500,000.

The 20-year-old was a stand out at this weekend’s A-League Grand Final where the Mariners thrashed Melbourne City 6-1.

In the wake of the victory, Triantis was asked about his future and said: “You never know (what is going to happen).”

“I’ve got two years left on my contract. I love this club, and I’ll always give everything for this club,” he said.

Later, in a post on Instagram, Triantis expressed his gratitude to his family for their support.

“I am nothing without my family and close circle around me. I’m so grateful for everything my family done for me over the years sacrificing their time for my career,” he wrote.

He particularly thanked his mother and said: “nothing is possible without you, you have sacrificed your life for our family and we are all so grateful for you.”

It’s understood that Sunderland have been tracking Triantis for some time and they moved quick to secure his signature, beating other teams which were interested after his breakout debut season for the Mariners.

Triantis’ signature will add depth to the Sunderland side, who are planning to fight for another Premier League promotion next season.
