thumbnail Hello,

Trotters' manager hailed the 30-year-old after his winner against Arsenal, and whilst denying he is keen on the forward, admitted he is set to make January additions to his squad

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has denied any interest in Fulham striker Bobby Zamora, but has hailed the forward as “an outstanding footballer”.

Zamora was instrumental in his side’s surprise win over Arsenal on Tuesday, with Johan Djourou sent-off for hauling down the former West Ham man before the 30-year-old bagged a last-gasp winner for his side.

The England international's relationship with boss Martin Jol has been rumoured to have deteriorated recently, but Coyle has revealed that there has been no contact made over a potential move for the player.

"Bobby Zamora is an outstanding footballer but I certainly have not had any dialogue with Martin Jol or any people at Fulham,” he told reporters.

"You only had to look yesterday to see the qualities that Bobby Zamora has but there has been no interest from Bolton Wanderers."

The former Burnley boss did confess he is in the market for new players, however, as he looks to strengthen his side in a bid to safeguard their top-flight status, with the Trotters currently sat bottom of the Premier League table.

"We are chasing one or two of our own targets because that is the way football works and we are trying to bring them in to help the squad," the 45-year-old added.

"We have suffered injuries to top players from the start of the season. We are starting to get one or two back but there is no doubt that we need to get one or two in to help the squad we have to make sure we stay in the Premier League.”
