Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle says Fabrice Muamba has a big future at the Reebok.

Despite the competition for places in the centre of the park, Muamba is very much part of the Reebok boss's long-term plans.

"Fabrice is a top player and will play for me for many years to come," said Coyle.

"Fabrice has been outstanding for me and it has been a wrench not to start him."
