Bolton move for Jimmy Bullard

14 January 2009 09:16
The England squad player was the subject of two bids, both rejected, from Bolton manager Gary Megson, who is understood to have offered £5.75 million and defender Nicky Hunt in exchange.[LNB]Fulham have admitted that they may not be able to hold on to the midfielder, signed from Wigan in 2006, and the 29-year-old, who is sidelined with a groin injury, could be lured away by an improved wage offer, particularly as he has 18 months left on his Fulham contract[LNB]Megson has already been unsuccessful with bids for West Brom's James Morrison and Newcastle's Joey Barton and Bullard represents the type of player Megson wants to buy. [LNB]Arsenal were interested in the midfielder, however, and they are monitoring the situation while they wait to see if their attempts to sign Andrei Arshavin have been successful.[LNB]Meanwhile, former Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp has admitted that he could one day return to the club in a coaching capacity.[LNB]Bergkamp said: "I wouldn't rule out [working at Arsenal in some capacity]. I really love this club and the country and I love working here.[LNB]"I would advise everyone to work in England, as a player or a coach, it just breathes football. It's fantastic for the game."[LNB][LNB]
