Bolton Wanderers appear now to be on the verge of landing the 29 year old, former Leeds hitman on a free after it appears Beckford and Leicester have agreed a settlement on the contract. The original aim for the striker was to join Wanderers in Spain but he could now end up joining the pre-season preparations and optimistically could feature in the weekend fixture at Shrewsbury.
This is not the first time the club have felt a deal has been close, the White's registered interest in Beckford shortly after missing out on a play-off place as Freedman set about building his squad for the next Championship campaign. On no more than two occasions, it has appeared that a deal is imminent. However, The Bolton News claim their sourcesin the midlands expect a deal to be completed ending the Wanderers transfer saga.
A £1 million appearance clause triggered by just one more Beckford appearance in a Leicester shirt has seen the foxes so willing to part with the striker, who, as a result, spent a lengthy part of last season on loan at Huddersfield, where he netted 8 goals in 21 appearances, a very healthy return I think you would agree.
Personally, I still have not forgiven Beckford for breaking my heart on a cold Goodison night after a Chungy error in the final seconds, 15 goals this campaign in a Wanderers shirt might change that.
