Blake signs for Bolton
According to the Bolton News, Robbie Blake has rejoined his former boss, Owen Coyle and left Turf Moor for the Reebok on a free transfer. He therefore becomes the first player to move between the two clubs since Coyle left in January.
If the report is true it will also be disappointing for Clarets fans to learn that he has only signed a one-year deal with the Premier League side after turning down a similar deal with the Clarets which also included an additional one year option if he started 20 games next season.
The 34-year-old by all accounts agreed terms last night but it seems his determination to hold out for a two year contract may have been a bit of a red herring. He had been linked with a move to Hearts last week after a two year contract had been put on the table but it would appear the lure of Premier League football proved too much for Robbie!
