Big Sam Fails In His Bolton Swoop

Last updated : 12 June 2007 By Footy Mad - Editor
New Bolton boss Sammy Lee says he fears Sam Allardyce stripping away his backroom staff and top players, but skipper Kevin Nolan says he is NOT heading to Newcastle.

Despite reports suggesting Lee was happy to cash in on the midfielder, the truth is Lee wants to build his team around Nolan.

The 24 year-old signed a new deal just last season keeping him at the club until 2010 and he has repeatedly stated his desire to remain at the Reebok Stadium.

He dismissed talk of a switch to Newcastle, telling the Manchester Evening News: "I am really happy at the club."
