Bolton Wanderers have confirmed that manager Gary Megson has agreed a new rolling contract with the club. Speaking before Sunday's clash with Newcastle United at the Reebok Stadium, chairman Phil Gartside revealed that Megson had penned a new deal with the Trotters. The 49-year-old former West Bromwich Albion, Nottingham Forest and Leicester boss initially agreed a two-and-a-half year deal when he replaced Sammy Lee in the managerial hot-seat back in October 2007 "We're looking to build on the stability that Gary and his team have brought to Bolton," said Gartside. "By signing the new contact this is a natural part of the process."
