Bogdan bags new Bolton contract

The 23-year-old, who joined the Trotters from Vasas SC in August

2007, made his first-team debut in the Carling Cup win over

Southampton in August and has gone on to make seven further

appearances, including three in the Premier League. Bolton boss

Owen Coyle said: “We’re delighted that Adam’s committed himself to

a new contract. It shows that we’re investing in young players and

trying to build the football club with that nucleus of those young

players. “Mark Davies, Fabrice Muamba and Lee Chung-yong have all

committed themselves to new deals at the club and Adam’s the same.

“Since I came to the football club he’s been outstanding and to

have a young goalkeeper of that ilk commit himself is great news

for everybody.” Bogdan has been working with, and now providing

competition for, Bolton’s long-serving number one Jussi

Jaaskelainen, who turns 36 next month. Coyle added: “Jussi has

probably been one of, if not the, top performers in the Barclays

Premier League for the last 10 years and for Adam to work with

someone of that quality, it can only help him. And Jussi knows he’s

now got real competition.”
