Coyle: I’ll try to get Dan back

Sturridge spent the second half of last season at the Reebok

Stadium, impressing with eight goals in 12 appearances. The England

Under-21 international has admitted he wants to try and break his

way into the Chelsea side, but Coyle believes he would be better

off returning to Bolton for another loan spell. “We will try and

get him back here for next season,” Coyle told the Daily Star.

“It’s a win-win situation – for the player, the parent club and for

us. “I feel with Daniel that another period at Bolton will take him

on to the next level and then he will be a starter for Chelsea.

“Right now he is behind Drogba, Torres, Malouda, Anelka and Kalou.

Like all our loan players, we give them a platform and belief they

can play in the best league in the world. “Daniel set the place

alight during his time here – and we’d love him back to help with

his development next season.”
