Zat Knight: This Could be my Last Year at Bolton


Speaking to the BEN, 33-year-old Bolton Wanderers club captain Zat Knight is considering his future ahead of an uncertain summer, with his contract due to end in May.

Knight is content to stay patient while Wanderers are so close to the relegation zone, which is nice of him, though despite a distinct upturn in his own form at the tail end of the campaign, Knight believes it is unlikely the club will offer him a chance to extend his five-year stay, for the time being.

He said:

"I'm just happy to be playing and, to be honest, I'd rather have kept a clean sheet than have scored a goal," he said of the 82nd-minute header that salvaged a point.

"I've enjoyed five seasons here and one of my main objectives in staying here in the first place was to get the club back into the Premier League, back to the club I started at.

It hasn't been possible in the last two years, so now I can only wait and see what happens at the end of the season.

"I'll be honest, I don't think we're in a position to talk about things at the moment.

"Our main objective is to finish as high as possible in the league. The manager, the chairman and whoever else can talk to whatever players they like, and go from there."
