Adam Bogdan extends Bolton contract

Paul Thomas

Great news for Bolton Wanderers fans as Dougie Freedman has extended his starting goalkeeper's contract. Adam Bogdan, who has been great more often than not since being thrust into the starting spot early last season, will now be a Wanderer for even longer. Following the departure of Ali Al-Habsi and injury to Jussi Jaaskelainen, Bogdan made the starting spot his own. The new contract runs until 2015.

Bogdan, the Hungarian and Bolton number one goalkeeper, is still just 25 years old. In terms of shot-stoppers, that's an infant, barely out of the goalkeeping womb and thus not in his prime. Adam has played every minute of Bolton's 19 league matches this season and has found renewed success under Dougie Freedman, allowing an average of just one goal per match and keeping one clean sheet in six tries. If his defense began helping out even more, there's no doubt that Bolton have the ability to continuously put duck-eggs in the opposition score columb.

His old contract was set to expire in 2014. He was brought to Bolton by Sammy Lee in 2007 from Hungarian side Vasas SC.
