Bolton manager Gary Megson insists he would not swap long-serving goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen for any other in the Premier League.[LNB]The 34-year-old Finn has been rewarded with a testimonial against Hibernian this summer, having made 425 appearances since his £100,000 transfer from VPS Vaasa in November 1997.[LNB]Jaaskelainen has been an ever-present in the league this season and was in top form in last weekend's goalless draw at Wigan.[LNB]"I think most people recognise the qualities Jussi has. He is certainly not undervalued at this place," said Megson. "He has proved to be a fantastic signing. Jussi came to us as raw material.[LNB]"I think we have the best goalkeeping coach in the Premier League in Fred Barber and he has done a great deal of work with Jussi and he has got better and better.[LNB]"He's like a fine wine, as he gets older he gets better and we wouldn't swap him for anyone else."
