Gary Cahill remains focused on Bolton


Bolton Wanderers centre-half Gary Cahill has played down continuing talk of a big-money transfer, insisting that he is more than happy with the Trotters.

The 24-year-old England international is a rumoured target for all the Premier League’s major players, but Cahill says he is not thinking of a possible Reebok Stadium exit.

He commented:“I’m contracted to Bolton Wanderers and I’m enjoying my football and my time here.

“The speculation goes over my head and is out of my control, so really it’s a bit repetitive and if it’s spoken about, it’s spoken about.

“The whole reason why I left Aston Villa was because I needed to play games and the only way I was going to improve was by playing.

“I’m a much better player than I was then. I’ve cut out mistakes and things I used to do like going to ground in tackles in the box.

“I just need to keep my head down and keep focused on the job I’ve got to do at Bolton. It’s a real joy to be part of the team at the moment.”
