‘I’m at the club until I’m told otherwise’ Josh Magennis right to ponder Bolton Wanderers Options

Behind the scenes Bolton Wanderers are in turmoil, things aren’t amazing on the pitch either.

We’ve seen player strikes and players not getting paid last season, but recently Northern Ireland International Josh Magennis, despite his limited footballing ability has released a statement of intent during a recent interview.

When Magennis was asked about whether he is still committed to Bolton the big striker replied: “Unless somebody comes in and buys me, or unless the club goes bust and I’m able to walk away from my contract as a free agent, I’m at the club until I’m told otherwise.”

It, therefore, seems that the Northern Irishman isn’t set to down tools anytime soon and is going to honour his contract at the club, something that I’m sure fans of the turmoil club will appreciate.

Despite the statement, however, it does seem that Magennis isn’t exactly over the moon to be stuck under contract at Wanderers. He’s only been at the club a year after moving from Charlton Athletic, but I guess the uncertainty would have anyone contemplating their future.

The striker hasn’t exactly set the world alight during his time at Bolton, meaning I’m unsure if anybody would pay a fee for the big target man. Which leaves him looking at the future of the actual club with doubt, as he is under contract until the end of the 2020 season.

We can all guess the underlying message in the player’s recent interview and statement, but without reading between the lines all the striker has said is he will honour his contract. Something that I’m sure if he took legal action over, he’d be able to get out of due to his and all the Bolton players wages not being paid on time.
