Bolton Wanderers striker Marvin Sordell has had his phone confiscated because he's hooked on Twitter!

The Mirror says Sordell, 21, has become hooked on the social networking site since his £3.2million transfer to Bolton Wanderers from Watford last season.

The Under-21 striker has struggled to settle down in the northern town and manager Dougie Freedman admitted today: "There have been small issues off the field with his tweeting.

"It could be bordering on an obsession with Twitter and Facebook and all the things that go on with these kids.

"We are now trying to work with Marvin - by taking his phone off him."
