I hope this is not true

As reported last week, former Barcelona, Chelsea and Bolton Wanderers forward Eidur Gudjohnsen has been training at Euxton with Neil Lennon's squad in the hope of earning a contract with the Championship side.

However, it appears that news of the 36 year old Icelandic forward's availability on a free transfer could scupper Wanderers' efforts to re-sign the forward who made 54 appearances between 1998 and 2000, scoring 19 goals before moving to the bright lights of Chelsea and the Premier League for a miserly £4m.

Speaking to the Bolton Evening News, manager Neil Lennon addressed rumours that Wanderers faced competition for his signature:

"It wouldn't surprise me,"

"I just think that the fact he wants to still keep playing on is impressive.

He continued:

"He has had a break and come back looking very fresh. He's integrated really well.

"All that is left to do is assess where he is up to - but how do you assess Eidur Gudjohnsen? You know what I mean, we'll have a good look at him."

Don't let him slip through your fingers Neil, don't you dare.
