Bolton boss: Elmander rated at £22M!

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson admits they've been priced out of a deal for Toulouse centre-forward Johan Elmander.

The Wanderers chief was keen to sign a replacement for Nicolas Anelka after the Frenchman moved to Chelsea.

Elmander was top of his list, along with Barcelona's former Trotters striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

Megson was looking to pay £9million for Sweden star Elmander.

He said: "His club wanted £22million. It was never going to happen at that price."
