CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh Head Coach Terry Fenwick is certain of Lester Peltier earning a very attractive contract in England with either Championship Club Cardiff City or Division One Club Millwall FC.

Another Club still holding interest in the 18 year old attacking midfielder is Premiership giants Arsenal after he spent four days on trial with the Club last week and had the privilege of being in the company of French striker  and Dutchman Robin Van Persie.

Peltier along with Jabloteh teammate Jason Marcano had both left Trinidad over the Carnival weekend for England on trial with Division One Club Millwall FC.

Speaking to ‘’ a thrilled Fenwick said, “Everywhere Peltier has been over the last few weeks in England, he has done extremely well. They are all delighted in him and all want to sign him,” said the Englishman.

Peltier spent time with Millwall FC, Cardiff City, Arsenal and is presently back with Championship Division team Cardiff as his English trial continues.

With all the options available to the midfielder, Fenwick is now looking to grab the best offer for both Peltier and for Jabloteh.

“Peltier is now back at Cardiff City and made his first appearance for them on Monday in a Reserve team affair with Hereford. The coaches are delighted with what they have seen and have opened up talks on a deal,” said Fenwick.

“We are now looking to the best offer available for Peltier. Wherever he signs should be good for him and will also benefit San Juan Jabloteh,” assured the Pro League coach.

Cardiff is currently sixth on the English Championship table, four points behind third placed Sunderland, the Club of Dwight Yorke, Stern John and Carlos Edwards.

According to Fenwick Arsenal’s Youth Director Liam Brady is also impressed with the Trinidad and Tobago national under-20 player.

“At Arsenal they were delighted with his movement off the ball. He brushed shoulders with a lot of the first-team guys even as he trained in the academy. There was a nice touch to it as well when Thierry Henry made sure to tell him that he should make sure and sign with Arsenal because they are one of the biggest clubs in the world. We want to ensure that we do a deal that is best for the kid and he is well taken care of. It's a very interesting and delicate situation at the moment,” he said.

Fenwick added that whichever club his player ends up at will form a partnership with the Pro League Club, CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh.

“This, by extension, will be a great boost for football in Trinidad and Tobago. This is what the club is about. We have thought long and hard about football in this country and the benefits and we have decided to go the way of developing the younger players and trying to boost the country's football,” ended the former England player.
