Ben Alnwick commits future to Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Ben Alnwick has ended speculation over his future by signing a new two-year deal on Wednesday. The shot-stopper, who picked up a clean sweep of accolades at the end-of-season awards, has extended his future at the Macron Stadium despite apparent interest from former club Sunderland.

Back in April, Alnwick suggested that he was in negotiations regarding a fresh deal with the Trotters and the 31-year-old has now finally put the question to bed. Speaking on the club’s official website, he said:"We’ve been talking about the contract for a while now. Once I was able to come down, I was absolutely over the moon to get it signed. It was always the plan to get my future sorted out early and it was a no-brainer to stay here. It was all I wanted to do from the end of the season. I’ve been knocking on the door all the way through the season to get a new contract because I love it here. I’m settled and it’s somewhere I always wanted to stay."

Phil Parkinson Hopeful Bolton Wanderers Have Stopped The Rot

Bolton Wanderers head coach Phil Parkinson is hoping that the Trotters have stopped the rot after picking up a valuable point against Barnsley. Four successive defeats had put the Trotters on the cusp of the relegation zone but they managed to cease the run with a 2-2 draw against Barnsley on the road.

Bolton Wanderers Sign Chinedu Obasi On A Free Transfer

Bolton Wanderers have confirmed the signing of Nigerian footballer Chinedu Obasi on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old has joined the Trotters until the end of the season after having impressed in his trial with the Under 23 side against Burnley last week. The Nigerian was afforded just half an hour in a weather-interrupted match with the reserve team, and he made the most of his opportunity by scoring the winner.

Obasi, who had last played for AIK in Sweden, had maintained the stance that he would not claim wages unless he returns to competitive action, and it appears that the marksman will now have the chance to make an impact in Bolton’s relegation fight.

Cardiff City Interested in Signing Bolton’s Madine

Cardiff City are showing a lot of interest in bringing in Bolton striker Gary Madine in the January transfer window. Cardiff have suffered a slump in form over the last few weeks and it is threatening to eliminate their push for promotion. The major reason behind this disappointment over the last few weeks is the injury problems faced by the squad. Manager Neil Warnock has been without Danny Ward after a knee surgery for the forward, while the likes of Kenneth Zohore and others have had several injury problems over the last couple of months.

As a result, there are suggestions that Warnock may look to bring in Madine as the top centre forward at Cardiff. Madine has been a key player for Bolton this season. He has helped the club slowly move away from the bottom places and towards safety. He has been able to come up with nine goals so far this campaign, but the biggest hint of Madine being sold in this January window came when the forward was left out of the game against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup. Even though Bolton might have given him a place on the bench, being left out of the squad altogether raises suspicions about a potential move.

Allardyce rules out Bolton return

After a turbulent year, Sam Allardyce is now back on the management merry-go-round and is now favourite to take over the vacant manager’s job at Everton.

However, recently, there have been rumours linking Allardyce with a possible future return to his old stomping ground at Bolton Wanderers. He has come out and quashed such talk saying he may consider a role “upstairs” at the club if one came about but he definitely would not take over the reins again.

Bolton Wanderers emerge from EFL transfer embargo after 630 days

Bolton Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson has confirmed that the club are no longer under a transfer ban.


The Trotters were initially punished by the EFL in December 2015 after they failed to submit the necessary documents. The embargo prevented the Trotters from paying fees for players joining on loan or on full-time basis while their squad had to be restricted to just 24 professional players. Meanwhile, they could not pursue any top quality free-agents as they had restricted to spend no more than £4,500-a-week wages.
