Kevin Nolan looks to have ruled out beating his former boss's trail to the North East after pledging his future to the Trotters, following his new deal. In what would be a cracking signing for the lads, replacing Parker's lack of goals and turning circles with midfield dynamism, our hopes have been dashed again with this one. Nolan said:
'I've spoken to Sam since he left to thank him for everything he did for me. But I'm a Bolton player and I'm really happy at the club.'
One player attracting a heavy set of links to SJP is Tal Bn Haim, with his native Israeli press believing it's a done deal.
