According to reports from Football Insider, Bolton Wanderers have rejected a bid for one of their players.

The club have stood firm having received a bid from Crystal Palace for goalkeeper Remi Matthews.

Pete O’Rourke from Football Insider states:

”Crystal Palace have had a bid rejected by Bolton Wanderers for goalkeeper Remi Matthews, Football Insider can reveal.

The Premier League club have made a formal move for the 25-year-old as they look to strengthen their keeper ranks this summer.

A Palace source has told Football Insider that the club are eager to provide competition for current senior pair Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita.

Matthews has been in their sights for some time but Palace will have to make an improved offer to convince cash-strapped Bolton to sell him.”

Football Insider don't state how much the bid actually was.

Good to hear that Wanderers are in a position not to accept every bid coming in.

Remains to be seen whether or not Palace return with an improved bid.

For now, Remi is a Wanderer and won’t have to play warhammer with Roy.
