Bolton's Nolan: Anelka equal to Man Utd stars Rooney, Tevez

Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Nolan says teammate Nicolas Anelka is every bit as good as Manchester United stars Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez.

He said: "We know everyone fancies Nic, who wouldn't? But we want to keep him and, if he went, we would have to buy a Rooney or Tevez to replace him.

"If we can keep Nicolas, we can be going for Europe again and perhaps even for the Champions League.

"He has a lot to say and has a big influence in the dressing room. He's part of our committee and makes sure our feelings are heard."
