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
