Coyle welcomes interest in Bolton stars

Bolton boss Owen Coyle admits he is not bothered by interest from bigger clubs in two of his star players.

In fact, the Trotters manager says is a compliment that the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool are after defender Gary Cahill whilst Spartak Moscow and Fenerbahce are keen on in-form striker Johan Elmander.

"I don't go overboard about it - I accept it. It doesn't surprise me," Coyle said.

"There are clubs looking at a lot of my players because of how they are doing. I don't get too worried about it, they are looking because they are doing well for me.

"I don't concern myself with bids until they happen. If people make them we will deal with that.

"Ultimately it will be up to the club to decide what's in the best interests when it comes to the business side."
