Robert for Bolton

Not open for further replies.
Skysports.com can reveal Laurent Robert is close to signing for Bolton from Newcastle.

Robert was always expected leave St James' Park this summer after falling out-of-favour at St James' Park .

The Frenchman has admitted he was looking to leave Newcastle because of his strained relationship with Magpies boss Graeme Souness.

The news alerted a number of clubs to Robert's availability with several sides making enquiries for him.

Manchester City, Portsmouth and Rangers have all been linked with Robert, but Bolton have stolen a march on their rivals by luring him to Lancashire.

Bolton have agreed a fee with Newcastle for Robert and the player's agent Willie McKay confirmed a move was expected to be sealed on Monday subject to a medical.

"Laurent is set to sign for Bolton on Monday subject to a medical," McKay told skysports.com.

"He is due to put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal and he is on the same deal he was on at Newcastle.

"Talks with Bolton have gone well and I expect a deal to be concluded.

"Sam Allardyce has always been an admirer of Laurent and wants to reunite him with Jay-Jay Okocha after their time together at Paris Saint Germain."

His attitude might have been a problem but he's a quality player. Thats a great signing for Bolton IMO
