Bolton : Operation Deadwood Continues
Stories linking Bolton`s less accomplished players with other clubs continue to circulate. Football fantasy paper, the Daily Mirror has Heidur Helguson going to Charlton for £1.25 million. A couple of weeks ago he was off to Nottingham Forest for £1.5 million. This rapid depreciation is worrying. If it continues, Bolton will have to pay someone to take him by the end of the transfer window. Coventry and Sheffield United are also said to be interested. It seems that the Helg will be taking a trip down to the Championship, where he belongs.
The figure of £1.25 million seems to be in fashion at the moment. West Brom are said to have offered that, plus Paul Robinson for Abdoulaye Meite. This is Paul Robinson, the slightly deranged left back, not the fat Spurs goalkeeper, or the character from Neighbours. On reflection, the one-legged entrepreneur from Ramsay Street may be the best bet. He`ll still have greater mobility than Jlloyd Samuel.
