Andrews Not Necessarily Trotting Off
Keith Andrews being sent out on loan this season doesn't tend to suggest that he has a future with Bolton, or does it?
Players of his age don't too often go out on loan on a long-term basis and then return but even though he was 'surplus to requirements' this season Dougie Freedman, ahead of the weekend meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion where he is on loan, hasn't ruled out a return.
The Bolton boss told the Bolton News: 'I spoke to Keith and, at his age, he wanted to play football, which I respect.
'He wasn't one of those who wanted to sit around, so we let him go out on loan and sponsored the deal. After his loan has finished I expect him back here this summer and we will take it from there.
'If he shows what he is capable of showing in the summer, it is a different season and we can look at it again.'
Time will tell what's going to happen but it would be a surprise if the Republic of Ireland international was part of Freedman's plans next season I, as an outsider looking in, would think.
Mr Ecky sends his best to the Vital Bolton community, he's currently not well, he'll be back as soon as possible and in the meantime, he's got a staff writer to fill in for him.
If anyone has something to share in the meantime (this gives a genuine Bolton point of view from a Bolton fan!) feel free to fire an email through.
Please include your username so I can put that to it though.
