Twitter might not be the best source for unconfirmed soccer (football) news. It has the ability to start some crazy rumors (Kevin Davies to Arsenal on Deadline Day) but it also has the ability to break the story before anyone else gets a sniff of it (Boyata signs on). Well we sure hope that the little bit of information that broke today falls into the latter category.
Duncan Castles, a football writer for the Sunday Times, broke this little bit of juicy information earlier today:
The one piece of solace that both Tottenham and Arsenal fans had after failing to sign Gary Cahill was that he would either leave on the cheap in January so Bolton could cut their losses or for free next summer. Turns out... not so much. According to Castles, there is a unilateral clause in Cahill's contract which allows the club to extend his deal by another year, meaning that Gary has no say in the matter.
We'll wait for official word but this news could explain Bolton's tough Stance on Cahill during the summer Transfer window and not willing to let him go for anything less than cash and Jermain Defoe.
