Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is confident the club can handle fresh transfer speculation over star striker Nicolas Anelka.

"There is always talk about players the stature and quality of Nicolas Anelka," Megson said. "There are always going to be other clubs interested.

"But nothing been set in stone either way so there is nothing to deal with at the moment. You would expect players here to be linked with other clubs. But you would expect us to be linked with players as well.

"That's not unusual now to the Premiership because of the window system we have got now. Clubs start getting a little excited getting towards January.

"I disapprove of the window very strongly. It may help some clubs but it doesn't help the majority. However, this next two weeks, in terms of the staff's time, will be utilised watching games and trying to identify players we might be able to bring in during the window."
