Bolton manager Owen Coyle has denied any hitch in Gary Cahill’s proposed move to Chelsea and believes the deal will still go through, Press
Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas stated on Friday that the two parties were ‘miles apart’ with their negotiations. Bolton have accepted a £7m offer from the Blues and Cahill is expected to have played his last game for Bolton in their 1-1 draw with Wolves yesterday. Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay is expected to meet with Cahill’s representatives early next week.
Coyle has denied Villas-Boas claims and insists that the two parties have only had one meeting. The Bolton boss has also stated that Cahill has yet to speak to Chelsea and is happy to keep him at Bolton if the deal falls through. Villas-Boas is eager to sign Cahill to improve his Chelsea defence, which conceded 3 goals yesterday in a home loss to Aston Villa.
The Bolton boss said: ’I heard what Andre Villas-Boas said the other day that they were a bit apart. He’s obviously heard from the one meeting. They’ve only had one meeting with Gary’s representative and then, with the games coming up, I had to make sure Gary was focused. Gary hasn’t spoken to Chelsea yet. Whatever comes in the next few days, it’ll come, but if it doesn’t, then Gary remains a Bolton player’.
