Juke: I Want to Stay at Bolton Wanderers

Scott Heavey

We want you to stay too!

Speaking with the BEN, Middlesbrough loanee Lukas Jutkiewicz has declared his interest in turning his temporary spell at Bolton Wanderers into a permanent transfer at the end of the season.

Jutkiewicz, who has been nothing short of a revelation since joining on loan at the end of January, has scored four goals in six games along with forming an impressive partnership with Joe Mason, who himself has been a player reborn since the decision by manager Dougie Freedman to partner the two men together up front.

He said:

"I have not had any talks yet; I leave the talking to everyone else to be honest. But I am enjoying it here and would love to stay here for longer than my loan period.

Straight away I felt comfortable at Bolton and it feels like a good place for me. I would really like to organise something that will allow me to stay for longer.

I am here until the end of the season so hopefully we can sort something out to make it go longer."

The Bolton fans have been supportive since day one and made me feel welcome. I have always been a team player to be honest. Adulation is not something I crave in the slightest but at the same time people have made me feel welcome and I appreciate that."

As stated earlier, the tactical switch to bring both Mason and Jutkiewicz into the side has been a key factor in Wanderers' recent upturn in form.

The Cardiff City striker was a disappointment in his first spell on loan, scoring just once in eight games. However, he has been a much improved player since being paired with our boy Juke.

"Joe has been right on form since he came back. I knew from beforehand - we have mutual friends and we were at Plymouth together - what kind of player Joe is.

I have also played against him before and he is really lively, works really hard and makes fantastic runs. It is enjoyable playing up front with him and it seems to be working well."
