As reported by The Evening Telegraph, former Rangers and Dundee United midfielder Charlie Telfer has turned down a move to Bolton Wanderers in favour of a move to The Netherlands.

The article states:

"Former Dundee United midfielder Charlie Telfer is set to switch to Dutch football via a move to Almere City. In the process he’s set to turn his back on the chance of a contract with Bolton in the English Championship.

Telfer cost United £200,000 when they snatched him from Rangers three years ago, but left Tannadice at the end of last season when he wasn’t offered a new contract.

Earlier in the summer he was training with Dumbarton and the weekend before last turned out as a trialist for Bolton.

Keen on a complete change of scenery, however, the 22-year-old has instead decided to head for the Netherlands and a deal with Almere, who operate in the second tier."

With squad restrictions in place, Telfer probably feels he stands more of a chance playing first team football at Almere, as opposed to at Wanderers.

Bolton are still hopeful of completing deals for the Atkinson twins, Michael and Robert, for David Lee's U23 side.
