Ex-West Ham midfielder Reo-Coker shocked to be without club

Former West Ham United and Bolton Wanderers midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker remains without a club.

He activated a relegation release clause at the Reebok during the summer

Reo-Coker told The Sun: "I've discovered that people have been contacting clubs, claiming to represent me, and been telling them how much money I supposedly want. Yet no-one has spoken to me about it. I've made no demands.

"If it was all about money, I'd have stayed at Bolton and picked up a Premier League wage in the Championship.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bolton. It was a great club and I had a good relationship with Owen Coyle and my team-mates. But I left because I wanted to stay in the top flight and to move nearer to London as I have just recently got married.

"What happened to Fabrice Muamba had a big effect on me. It made me think more about my family and people close to me.

'When I left Bolton, there were a number of Premier League clubs interested but that went quiet.

"Obviously, I have to now live by that decision to leave."
