Rais M’bohli heading for the SkyBet Championship?

After months of misery for the Sons Of Ben as they watched the M’Bohli saga spiral downwards faster than you can say Open Cup, it may finally be coming to a close. It has been reported by Bolton Wanderers fansite rt33 (dedicated to remembering the 33 who lost their lives in the Burnden Park Disaster) that the Algerian has indeed been on trial with the Northern English Side.

The team’s current number one is 25 year old Ben Amos and whilst Bolton won’t be looking for a first team keeper any time soon, manager Neil Lennon has stated that the team would be interested in finding a back up for Amos. They had previously been linked with Chris Kirkland and Lee Camp.

Bolton are searching to re-ignite their legacy after pacing themselves in the Championship for three seasons and will look to fight for Premier League contention once again with stars like Zac Clough.

In his nine starts for the Philadelphia Union, M’Bolhi found just one win. His $350,000 per annum salary was a huge dent in the teams works to off-load the under performing world cup player. A back up for a second division english league side is perhaps his best fit and should the rumours be true, be a huge weight lifted off of the shoulders of the Union.
