The breaking news this afternoon (according to Sky Sports in any case) is that Bolton are in discussions with Fulham for Jimmy Bullard.

Bolton have been consistently linked with Jimmy throughout the last couple of months so it’s no surprise that they would want to sign him. I’d be very surprised if Bullard left Fulham for Bolton, though. Maybe their wage structure could accomodate his bigger wage demands but his England ambitions aren’t necessarily going to helped by going up north. It would say a lot about Jimmy’s ambitions – I could understand if this was Arsenal or Aston Villa, who look like they might be breaking into the top four.

The latest breaking news is that Bolton have offered £5.75m and Nicky Hunt for Bullard. Do we really need another right back? I’d be disappointed if we accepted it to be honest. We’ll see what happens.
