Sordell Departs, Andrews Next to Go?

Charlie Crowhurst

One out and one almost out.....

Bolton Wanderers and Burnley have announced that former Watford striker Marvin Sordell has moved to the Clarets for a fee believed to be in the region of £600,000, where he will link up with former Watford boss Sean Dyche.

Sordell joined Bolton from Watford for a fee which could have risen to £3.2m on transfer deadline day in January 2012 following a successful early career at the Hornets which saw him net an impressive 21 goals in 75 appearances. Wanderers were pleased to beat off competition from Cardiff City for the then-20 year old Londoner.

However, the move didn't pan out as expected for all parties involved, with the striker struggling to break into then-Bolton manager Owen Coyle's first team, making just three appearances. He fared little better the season after, scoring just four goals in 22 outings, many of which came from the bench amidst rumours of an unhappiness on manager Dougie Freedman's part for Sordell's application on and off the field.

Sordell was loaned to fellow Championship side Charlton for the 2013/14 season where again he struggled for form, managing just 7 goals in 31 appearances for the London outfit.

He goes to Burnley with our best wishes but surely must go down as one of the most disappointing transfers of recent times.

Former Blackburn Rovers man Keith Andrews is also heading towards the exit, with the Bolton News now reporting that Sheffield Wednesday have now joined Huddersfield Town in chasing the Irish midfielder.
