Jack Rodwell has finally brought to an end his poisonous relationship with Sunderland and is looking to resurrect his career as best he can.
The Black Cats cancelled his £43,000 a week contract following relegation to League One, bringing to an end a miserable spell for both parties.
Sunderland legend Marco Gabbiadini described his stint in the North East as one of the club’s worst ever mistakes. It’s fair to say he won’t get a rousing ovation when he returns.
The player now has to move on and rebuild what is left of a promising career, with Championship side Bolton Wanderers showing interest.
Our FLW team discuss whether that would be a good move for the Trotters.
Any English side taking a punt of Rodwell are foolish.
The midfielder has been so bad for Sunderland and I couldn’t believe it when I saw Bolton linked.
Is Parkinson mad?
Surely this is a terrible idea for Bolton.
Unless Rodwell is willing take a cut from his reported £70k-per-week wages to less than £5k-per-week (which is not going to happen), why would Bolton take this risk?
I think a move to the MLS is the most likely for Rodwell now.
It’s potentially heaven for Bolton.
Rodwell is in no position to demand big wages, so should be cheap and needs to prove himself. If Bolton give him a short-term deal on a low wage, it’s a win-win. If he delivers, they’ve got a decent player on a free, if he fails, they let him go after a short spell.
Hell, hell, hell, hell, hell.
Rodwell has shown nothing over the last few years to suggest that he will be a good signing, and with his monumental wages it would be a ridiculous decision for Phil Parkinson to go for him.
