Bolton boss Owen Coyle has passionately dismissed the rumour that Gary Cahill could make a move to Liverpool before the summer transfer window closes.
Cahill has been a hot topic of discussion with regards to transfer speculation this summer, with Arsenal rumoured to be chasing his signature, despite no formal offer.
It is the reports of a big-money move to Liverpool that has tipped the Bolton boss over the edge though with the story being labelled as ‘without foundation’.
The former Burnley manager ranted: “This story is without a shred of foundation. It is irresponsible. To just reel words off is in poor taste. It doesn’t faze me. I am not raging about it. I am just making a point.”
Even if there was a bid from Liverpool for Cahill’s services, Coyle is adamant that the club don’t want to sell as they prepare for another assault on the Premier League.
He continued: “There are 27 days left. This is another one. Nothing has happened, there is nothing concrete, there is nothing to report. If anything happens, we will re-adjust. At the moment it is hypothetical, so will focus on the players we want to add to the club.”
You get the feeling that this isn’t the last we have heard on this issue. Cahill is an excellent defender and if Arsenal and Liverpool are interested, it would surely turn the England international’s head.
We don’t want to anger Mr Coyle though, so until there is something more concrete on Cahill’s future, we will keep quiet on this one.
Away from Bolton, the main transfer story of the day has been Chelsea’s capture of Barcelona midfielder Oriol Romeu for £4.35m, while Carlos Tevez has been told he is expected back at Manchester City for training on Monday.
