Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) can confirm Trent Sainsbury has terminated his employment contract with Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning effective immediately.

“The PFA’s legal department has provided advice to Trent since the conclusion of the World Cup,” PFA Chief Executive John Didulica said.

“Trent has terminated his contract for just cause in accordance with FIFA Regulations and the longstanding jurisprudence of the Court of Arbitration for Sport. As a consequence, he is now a free agent and entitled to sign with a club of his choosing.”

Sainsbury is now looking to resume his career as soon as possible.

“I thank the PFA for their support during this period and I wish Jiangsu Suning all the best for the future. I look forward to resolving my playing future as soon as possible.”
