Reserve Bolton keeper Bogdan signs new deal

Bolton keeper Adam Bogdan has committed his future to the Wanderers by signing a new contract which runs until the summer of 2014.

Boss Owen Coyle is delighted to be keeping Bogdan at the Reebok Stadium.

"We're delighted that Adam's committed himself to a new contract," Coyle said.

"Since I came to the football club he's been outstanding and to have a young goalkeeper of that ilk commit himself is great news for everybody."

Despite being used predominantly as back-up to first-choice stopper Jussi Jaaskelainen, the 23 year old has played a key role in the Trotters' run to the FA Cup semi-final.

The Hungarian joins team-mates Mark Davies, Fabrice Muamba and Lee Chung-yong in signing a new contract at the Reebok Stadium this season.

Coyle added: "It shows that we are investing in young players and trying to build the football club with that nucleus of young players."

The Scot also believes that working alongside veteran keeper Jaaskelainen can only aid Bogdan's development.

"Jussi has probably been one of the top performers in the Premier League for the last 10 years and for Adam to work with someone of that quality, it can only help him," Coyle commented.

"And Jussi knows he's now got real competition."
