Beckford Has His Fingers Crossed
Will Bolton sign Lukas Jutkiewicz on a permanent basis this summer? Dougie Freedman has played down these chances but Jermaine Beckford remains hopeful on this.
Middlesbrough look as though they will let the striker leave the Riverside in the summer the problem is that Freedman doesn't think that Bolton have the finances available to be able to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent basis so someone else might nab him.
Beckford has enjoyed playing alongside Jutkiewicz, as he had briefly Everton earlier in his career, and feels that had Bolton been able to sign him earlier in the season then he would have made a bigger difference to the season.
He's definitely hopeful that a deal can be agreed to bring him back to the Reebok Stadium next season though.
Beckford told the Bolton News: 'He's been something I personally think we could have done with a lot sooner. He would have made a difference to us.
'It was one of those things - he wasn't available earlier in the season but once we did get him, he`s been fantastic.
'Hopefully, we'll still be able to do something in the summer, fingers-crossed.'
Jutkiewicz has been an impressive loanee for Bolton, but he like a few others might not be with the club next season....
If it is financially viable do you think Bolton could manage to secure his signature, and would you want this?
