New Bolton deal for Megson

01 March 2009 01:08
Bolton manager Gary Megson has signed a new rolling contract with the Reebok Stadium club. Megson has seen his future come under scrutiny in recent weeks with Burnley boss Owen Coyle reported to be wanted as his replacement. The Trotters dismissed the Coyle speculation as 'rubbish' last Sunday, and chairman Phil Gartside has now confirmed that Megson has already put pen to paper on new terms in the North West. The former West Brom boss was brought in after Sammy Lee's departure early last season following his brief stint as Sam Allardyce's replacement and helped Bolton to avoid relegation. Speaking ahead of Bolton's clash with Newcastle, Gartside said: "Gary signed a new contract a couple of weeks ago and we haven't actually announced it yet. That is the truth of the matter. "Gary and I get on very well together and I know the quality of the work that is going on behind the scenes and there is no question about anybody else coming in. "He has got a good team behind him and they have worked hard this year. "Over the last 12 months we have had a lot of changes, about 22 players have gone out, we have had 10 or 12 come in, and we have got into a real transition period and I think we are beginning to get to the end of that."
