As reported last week, former Bolton Wanderers, Chelsea and Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen has been spotted training with the Whites under the auspices of 'keeping fit', but it has emerged today that new(ish) Wanderers boss Neil Lennon has not ruled out signing the Icelandic forward.

Speaking to the BEN, Lennon said:

"He was playing in Belgium up until the end of the season and we got a phone call from his agent, Gudni Bergsson, and he said Eidur has got the bit between his teeth, he wants to give it another go,"

He continued:

"Iceland are going well and he'd like the opportunity to play for them again"

With regards to the rumours online surrounding any potential move, Lennon said:

"He asked us would we take him in and take a good look at him so that's what we're doing at the moment.

"He's always been a class player. You don't play for Barcelona for three or four seasons or Monaco without being a good player."

On behalf of all Bolton Wanderers fans I say please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please make it happen!
