Nigel Reo-Coker of Bolton Wanderers looks dejected as they are relegated after the Barclays Premier League match between Stoke City and Bolton Wanderers at Britannia Stadium.
Well its a sorry time to be a Bolton fan, are we going to rub it in? Probably they have always said they were better and bigger than us, it doesn't look like for much longer. But lets not get dragged down in the dirt over that. What I am interested in, is that fact that they have released a total of 12 players who are now avaliable on a free.
Most of them are youth players who bulked out their squad, but there are a couple of players that maybe worth a look at. We are selves are releasing players this summer, a total of about six if my fiqures are right, most of which are fringe players that we aren't to bothered about.
Yet from Bolton two players shout out for me they are the striker of Ivan Klasnic and midfielder of Nigel Reo-Coker. Both have been a round and about in the Premier League and have shown they can cut it at the top level very well.
Nigel Reo-Coker has a great pedigree and was once tipped to become one of England's top midfielders. That never really developed for the player but he is still worth a look at and I don't think he would command a massive amount of wages, so within our price range. He would be a definte started and would only strength our team especilly with the departure of Diame.
Ivan Klasnic is another prospect that I think we should look at. He has scored goals for Bolton 30 of them in 77 apperances. Which is a very good return from the Croatian international. He may comand more wages, but with Rodallega leaving there is excess there and on a free a striker who can score would be a big help.
