DAVIES STAYING WITH BOLTON

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Mark Davies has signed a new deal and is going to stay in Bolton. The 22-year-old, who moved from Wolves to Bolton in January 2009, has made 25 appearances this season, scoring once.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle told the club website: "This shows we are trying to build a club for years to come.

"The nucleus is centred around young, exciting players and Mark certainly comes into that category."

BOLTON CAPTURE WHEATER

Bolton Wanderers have secured the signing of David Wheater from Middlesbrough on loan till the end of the season.The 23-year-old is believed to have made the move for an initial £2.3m with a further £1.5m based on appearances.

"There has been a lot of competition for his signature and again this shows a willingness on our behalf to invest in youth," said Bolton boss Owen Coyle.

"We have parted with good money for a very talented player who has been involved with England squads before."

BOLTON BEAT YORK

Bolton Wanderers moved into the next stage of the FA Cup after defeating York comfortably. York could have gone ahead when Ashley Chambers had a sight of goal but he misplaced his pass instead of shooting.

Neil Barrett's effort was saved well by Adam Bogdan as York pressed but from the counter attack Kevin Davies lashed Bolton in front from eight yards.

Johan Elmander wrapped up the win, curling into the corner from 25 yards.

BOLTON WIN

Bolton once again proved the class with a great win over newly promoted West Brom. The Baggies created the better chances with Peter Odemwingie spurning three excellent openings for the visitors.

But West Brom fell behind before the break when Lee Chung-Yong showed great composure to tee up Matt Taylor who side-footed in from close range.

And Elmander sealed victory late on, slotting home at the second attempt. The Swede's ninth league goal of the season - with only four minutes left - came towards the end of the home side's best spell of an enthralling game.

COYLE WANTS CAHILL STAY

Owen Coyle has said that he wants Gary Cahill to stay at Bolton Wanderers. Cahill has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League since joining Bolton two years ago and made his England debut in September.

The 24-year-old has regularly been linked with other clubs and was most recently mooted as a target for reigning champions Chelsea.

However, Coyle does not want to lose any of his best players as he also tries to convince Johan Elmander to sign a new contract at the Reebok Stadium.

LEE SIGNS

Bolton Wanderer's winger Lee Chung-yong has signed a new contract. The 22-year-old joined from FC Seoul in summer 2009 and made 27 league starts in his debut season, scoring four goals, before playing in the World Cup.

"We have signed Lee on a contract extension," said manager Owen Coyle.

"It is great news for the club that such a talented player will be here for a long time."

BOLTON COULD HAVE WON IT

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle says that his side should have won all the points against Aston Villa. Kevin Davies cancelled out Ashley Young's early free-kick in the 35th minute to turn the game on its head, with Bolton Wanderers finishing the game the stronger of the two.

Villa had dominated the opening 20 minutes, creating several chances to score alongside Young's strike, but Coyle's men showed resolve in coming back into the game and almost completely nullifying Villa's threat in the second half.

BOLTON RELEASE SHITTU

Bolton Wanderers have parted ways with defender Danny Shittu by releasing him from his contract. The 30-year-old centre-half joined the Trotters in 2008 following a positive two-year spell at Watford, but made only 12 appearances during his time at the club.

The player's failure to break into the first-team saw manager Owen Coyle giving the defender his blessing to hunt for a new employer.

BOLTON CAPTURE REAL MADRID DEFENDER

Bolton Wanderers have pulled off a major coup in the transfer market by signing young Real Madrid defender, Marcos Alonso. The 18-year-old will undergo a medical at the Reebok this weekend, ending Owen Coyle’s long and complex chase for his signature.

It is thought the Whites have agreed a fee of around £1.6million to land the Real Madrid full-back, who turned down the chance to join Portuguese giants Benfica to try his luck in the Premier League.
