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.

Bolton Wanderers have recently been boosted by two back-to-back victories

Bolton Wanderers have recently been boosted by two back-to-back victories and this appears to have given manager Neil Lennon confidence that his team can progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Bolton are against Leeds United at home, where they have struggled throughout the season, but a home win can ensure that Bolton are able to make up for the league struggles with some FA Cup joy for the fans. The club remains five points adrift of safety after recently getting a massive three point against MK Dons in the league.

Freedman Expected To Suffer A Hard Transfer Season

For a club that was threatened with the prospect of relegation going into the final few months of the campaign, the end was quite happy. This was because Bolton finished midway into the Championship table at the end of the season. However, the club will be looking to target promotion in the upcoming campaign. In order to achieve this ambitious target, manager Dougie Freedman has revealed that he will be taking a hard-line when it comes to recruiting new players. Bolton have lost a number of experienced players in the last weeks of the summer.

COYLE LOOKING FORWARD TO WIGAN

Bolton manager Owen Coyle said that he is relishing the prospect of taking on Wigan Athletic knowing that it is one of the few six point matches left of the season.

The Premier league 2011-2012 season is coming to a close. This is the business end of the season and each and every point matters. Bolton will be taking on Wigan athletic who are at the bottom of the table.

BOLTON CHASE NUGENT

Portsmouth striker David Nugent is attracting the attention of Bolton Wanderers, according to the Portsmouth News.

The 25-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements at the start of the season and scored six goals during a season-long loan deal at Burnley.

The former Preston North End striker now looks likely to leave Fratton Park on a permanent deal with Bolton boss Owen Coyle, who he played under at Burnley, reportedly interested in signing him.
