Coyle rubbishes Cahill exit talk

21 April 2010 12:48
Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has dismissed speculation linking star defender Gary Cahill with a move to Premier League powerhouses Liverpool in the summer. The centre-half, who has recovered from a blood clot he suffered in his arm in February, is rumoured to be on Reds manager Rafa Benitez's radar as he looks at options to shore up his leaky defence for next season. However, Coyle can see no truth in the media rumours and the Scot believes he will still be at the Reebok Stadium next season. Speaking to reporters, he said: "I don't know anything about it. No-one has spoken to me. "There was also speculation about Liverpool and Lee Chung-Yong, wasn't there? "I can assure you there has been no dialogue (with Liverpool) at my level. And I hope I would have been told had it gone any higher. "You can't stop people admiring your players, but I see no reason why Gary Cahill shouldn't be at Bolton Wanderers next season. "He will continue to get better. Hopefully, we can help him improve as a player and that will be of benefit to Gary Cahill and to the club."
