Perhaps it is time for Bolton’s long serving keeper to move on, and with a clutch of goalkeepers disgracing themselves pretty much on a game to game basis, there should be no shortage of clubs sniffing around this Finnish stopper. Tottenham to give Paul Robinson a kick up the backside? Portsmouth in preparation for David James turning 75? Arsenal so they can finally tell Jens Lehmann to bugger off? Manchester City to upgrade that Swedish chap?
Sky sports is today reporting that Bolton’s contract talks with their ‘keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen have stalled.
Jussi’s agent Peter Harrison voiced his frustration that Bolton have seemingly bent over backwards to accommodate Nic Anelka and re-sign him but not his man. Harrison said:
“Bolton have tied up Nicolas Anelka…But Jussi has been there 10 years and talks have stalled.”
So would you want Jussi Jaaskelainen at your club?
