Cahill was going nowhere – Coyle

Coyle says it was written in his contract when he moved from

Burnley in December that the defender would not be moved on. Cahill

has attracted a number of suitors after breaking into the England

squad. However he is now putting down roots at Bolton in World Cup

year as the club attempt to stave off relegation. Coyle said: “We

have always been focused regarding Gary Cahill. I knew he wasn’t

going anywhere. That was one of of the stipulations when I came

here.” Bolton aim to improve their prospects on Saturday when they

face Fulham, who defeated Portsmouth last night. Coyle said: “What

we have to do now is concentrate on the players we have. We need

them to play to their maximum and elevate ourselves up the table.”

Coyle explained why Portuguese striker Ricardo Vaz Te decided to

stay at Bolton and not move to Hamilton on loan. “It was an

opportunity for him to go and play at a good level but he felt it

was a bit rushed with it being transfer deadline day, ” said the

Bolton boss. “Ricardo said he did not have enough time to think

things through. He decided to stay put and that is fine by me.”
