Freedman: Bolton will negotiate Feeney deal in January

DOUGIE Freedman has admitted Bolton will try to re-sign Liam Feeney in January.

Freedman was last week irked by Millwall's decision to recall the winger 28 days into a three-month loan spell at the Reebok Stadium.

Bolton could have triggered a buy-out clause to keep Feeney in their ranks, but Freedman refused to be bound to a permanent deal out of principle.



And he said yesterday: "We liked Liam, I think the fans did too, and it's someone I am looking for with that pace.

"He was loaned for three months and there was a buy-out there, but it was quite a lot.

"I'm not going to be put into a corner. Millwall asked us to pay that money and I said 'no' so he got called back. Will it resurface in January? Probably.



"We were tied into that deal but after 28 days he can come back. I think they will wait until January to see what happens.

"We would like him back because I think he did very well for us. But we'll look at the situation in January when we are not tied in to a buy-out or a loan – we'll be free to negotiate."

    lets not all get too excited January is a way off and lots of things could happen at both clubs and to Liam, all it is is Freedman just thinking aloud, but what if Feeney turns into a championship Bale? in the weeks leading up to January we wont want him to leave even if it does free up monies for others.

    But I cant see that actually happening can any of you.

      @Barnlion: No, definitely not. Anyway if he wants to pay a couple of million he can have him 🙂

    I hope Liam stays with us, the team need a winger of his pace commitment and ability. Bolton are unsettling Liam with this talk.

    Bolton are initiating pay-back time for Millwall's stance. Feeney will either stay or go but that's not going to be until January either way. Until then, it's not worth worrying about.

    His fee in January will be minimal as we don't play him regulary, and we are paying decent wages for the lad, so why would we make him run his contract out. I just wonderr if Freedman will be in the job in 4 months time?

      @Mo Slater Fruit and Veg: They cant buy him til January, its a loan window at the moment. I think he was unsettled before he went there sohe has to get his head down if he wants to stay.

    what principle dougie you want him,we wanted him back,as in the deal you could have said ' heres the money' you didnt so if you want him negotiate a fee, whats the problem.is it in your thinking to unsettle the boy so as to put a spanner in the works and cause some mischief if so where is the principle in that come on dougie dont insult our intelligence.you either want him or you dont.
    so liam if bolton want you so will others,has lomas seen things in you and now wants you back at millwall.what ever the situation just do as you said in your article,be the good professional and do the right things when given the chance and you are in a win win situation.but what ever bolton have said take no notice,just get your head down and do it right and you will be the winner.
    I for one wish you the best of luck as i think you are a good player and from what iv read you seem a decent person.
    just keep focused on the job in hand.

    What a little tw4t! You had the option to buy him - didn't take it so now he's back with us! If they liked him that much he'd still be there! Besides he'd need replacing with out lack of right sided players and the money they'd pay wouldn't be anywhere close to what we'd pay to replace him!

    When he went out on loan this would have been agreed by the two clubs as part of the deal. Why does he think all of a sudden he can back track and get a player who was doing very well on the cheap. They knew the price, pay it or shut up

      @beedoscores: Err I know that - but they are saying they are refusing to meet the asking price.
