Ricardo Gardner has rejected a proposed move to West Ham United as he wants to remain at Bolton.
The 32-year old midfielder/wingback has been heavily linked with a move to relegated West Ham, to link up with former Trotters boss Sam Allardyce, but his agent says he wants to stay and sign a short-term deal with the club he joined back in 1998.
"It was very tempting for Ricardo to go and play for Sam, as a former manager, and one he enjoyed a lot of success with," agent Phil Graham told Bolton News.
"But he didn't particularly want to relocate, and his family certainly didn't want to relocate.
"He loves the club and the town, and wants to see his career out at Bolton, and more importantly in the Premier League."
