Bolton sign exciting England U-21 international

February 1, 2012

After landing Ryo Miyaichi on loan from Premier League giants Arsenal, Bolton have made another addition to their forward line by securing the signature of exciting England U-21 international Marvin Sordell. The 20 year old moves to the Reebok Stadium from Championship outfit Watford and has signed a three and a half year contract with the Trotters.

Watford left Sordell out of their squad to face Millwall last night in order to enable the transfer to be pushed through at the last minute. The fee Bolton have paid for Sordell was not revealed, but sources say it could rise to as much as £3.5m depending on performances.

Sordell was being tracked by Cardiff City and a number of Premier League clubs, but Bolton’s increased bid saw them win the race.

Wearsiders make Davies enquiry

January 29, 2012

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has revealed that the club have had an enquiry from Sunderland AFC for the services of star striker Kevin Davies. Black Cats manager Martin O’Neill is looking for a temporary replacement for Danish international Nicklas Bendtner, who is out with a broken nose, and Davies, who has a wealth of experience with him, fits the bill correctly.

Davies has been an inspirational figure for Bolton in recent years and is easily their most recognizable player. However he has only scored twice in the current season and his contract, which expires at the end of the 11/12 season, hasn’t yet been extended.

Coyle however did admit that he would prefer to hold on to Davies instead of selling him to the Wearsiders.

Coyle ready to offer Dos Santos White Hart Lane escape route

January 16, 2012

Bolton manager Owen Coyle is weighing up a move for Spurs’ Mexican starlet Giovani dos Santos. Former Barca prodigy Dos Santos is disillusioned with the lack of first team football in North London and has been wanting to leave the Lilywhites for a while now. Coyle is reportedly ready to use the cash generated by Gary Cahill’s imminent move to Chelsea in order to bring Dos Santos to the Reebok.

Spurs have valued Dos Santos at £8m, a figure that Coyle reportedly values too high. Coyle had once tried to sign Dos Santos on loan when he was manager of Burnley.

Spurs have already rejected a bid around the £3.5m from La Liga outfit Sevilla for Dos Santos.

Stefano Magnasco to have Bolton trial

September 11, 2011

Promising Chilean youngster Stefano Magnasco is set to have a trial at Bolton Wanderers later this week. The Universidad Catolica defender has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs, most prominent among them being Chelsea, but has decided to snub the Blues in favour of the Trotters as he reportedly feels it will allow him to establish himself faster in the Premier League.

Magnasco will begin training with Bolton on Monday, just days after Owen Coyle’s side were humbled 5-0 by Manchester United in the Premier League.

Magnasco is primarily a right back and only recently signed a contract with Universidad.

Turkish international Tuncay returns to England with Bolton

August 12, 2011

Turkish international Sanli Tuncay has returned to England by signing for Bolton Wanderers on a season long loan. The former Stoke forward, who moves from German outfit VFL Wolfsburg, has passed a medical and signed a contract and now requires his work permit to be authorised by the Home Office to rubberstamp his transfer. Tuncay made the announcement on social networking site Twitter.

Sakarya born Tuncay played for Sakaryaspor and Fenerbahce in his home country before joining Middlesbrough in 2007. Two years later, he joined Stoke in August 2009, but found success hard to come by with the Potters. Wolfsburg offered him an escape route in January earlier this year which he accepted.

According to reports, Bolton can make his loan move permanent by paying £3m to Wolfsburg at the end of the season.

Trotters hope to take Sturridge on loan again

July 31, 2011

According to media reports, Bolton Wanderers are looking at the possibility of again bringing Daniel Sturridge on loan from Chelsea. The 21 year old spent the latter half of the 10/11 season on loan at the Reebok and impressed one and all with his performances, netting eight times in 12 appearances for the Trotters.

Sturridge has been impressive for Chelsea in their pre-season performances and netted a fabulous goal in their recent 4-0 win over Hong Kong outfit Kitchee. However the presence of both Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres may ensure that Sturridge have to be content with warming the bench at Stamford Bridge. The guarantee of regular football at Bolton and a possible shot at national football with England may be enough to lure Sturridge back to the North West.

Bolton agree fee with Burnley for duo

July 24, 2011

Bolton Wanderers have reached an agreement with Burnley FC for the transfer of Clarets duo Tyrone Mears and Christopher Eagles. Burnley announced on their website that they had “regretfully” accepted a bid for the duo, rumoured to be around £3m, as they were unable to get the pair to pen new deals. Both Mears and Eagles are in the last year of their contracts at Burnley.

If Mears and Eagles both manage to agree personal terms with Bolton, it will reunite them with Trotters boss Owen Coyle, who formerly managed them at Turf Moor.

Burnley also announced that the funds from the sale of both Mears and Eagles would be used to augment the squad for the forthcoming 2011/2012 Championship season.

Galatasaray confirm Elmander signing

May 31, 2011

It was rumoured to have been done and dusted a long time ago, but Johan Elmander’s transfer to Galatasaray is now official, with the Turkish giants announcing the news on their website. Elmander, Bolton’s record signing when he arrived from Toulouse in 2008, wanted to move to greener pastures and chose not to extend his contract with the Trotters despite a reasonably successfull 10/11 season at the Reebok stadium.

Galatasaray announced that Elmander had been given a three year deal ( till the end of the 2013/2014 season) and also made public the news that the Swedish forward would get 1.8m euros as his annual pay packet.

Galatasaray had a very poor Turkish Superlig 10/11 season, finishing a lowly 8th and missing out on a European spot altogether. The league was won by Gala’s great domestic rivals Fenerbahce.
