Jussi set for Reebok exit
Bolton keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen has rejected the offer of a new deal and is now set to exit the Reebok Stadium.
The Finnish shot stopper has been with the Wanderers for 15 years but has decided to reject the club's final two-year contract offer. According to the Bolton News, Jaaskelainen has informed the Wanderers that he wants to find first-team football elsewhere after being usurped by Adam Bogdan last season. Bolton boss Owen Coyle had been keen to keep hold of the 37-year-old but it would seem as if Jaaskelainen, who has made over 500 appearances for the Whites, is heading for the exit. Newly promoted West Ham, managed by former Bolton boss Sam Allardyce, and Premier League outfit West Brom have both been credited with an interest in the veteran shot stopper. It remains to be seen whether or not Coyle will move to replace Jaaskelainen or put his faith in youngsters Robert Lainton and Jay Lynch to act as backup to Bogdan at the Reebok Stadium next season.
