Bolton, Wigan and now Everton..

Recommended Posts

Crystal Palace have accepted an £8.5 million offer from Bolton Wanderers for striker Andy Johnson.

 

The Trotters' offer matches that made by Wigan Athletic just 24 hours earlier as the race for the England international hots up.

 

Sam Allardyce is keen to bring Johnson to The Reebok Stadium to add to the club's attacking options but looked to have missed out when Wigan were granted permission to talk with the 25-year-old.

 

Palace chairman Simon Jordan earlier this week announced at a press conference that there was interest in the striker, but none of the offers tabled had matched his valuation.

 

However, both Wigan and Bolton have now met Jordan's price and Johnson is expected to travel to the North West on Friday after playing for England B in a friendly against Belarus at Reading's Madejski Stadium on Thursday evening.

 

"Crystal Palace have accepted another bid for Andrew Johnson, after Bolton Wanderers offered £8.5 million for the player on Thursday," read a statement on Palace's official website.

 

"The offer from Sam Allardyce's side matches the one made on Wednesday by Wigan Athletic, and therefore the 25-year-old now has permission to speak to both Lancashire clubs."

 

Johnson's agent Leon Angel added: "He will meet the clubs who have offers accepted, and he will make his decision."

 

Everton and Portsmouth were also interested but they will have to match the offers tabled by Bolton and Wigan if they are to have any chance of snatching Johnson from under the noses of the two Lancashire sides.

that would be paying way over the odds, johnsons not worth more than 3M imo. I'll be surprised if he could score more than 7-8 goals for a team like bolton.

You're right, but he'd score at least 15 for Wigan.

Most of which he won, scoring 21 goals in a relegated side is an achievement however you look at it. Looking forward to Aj proving some people wrong next year.
