Lukas Jutkiewicz: Will see out the season on loan at Bolton

Lukas Jutkiewicz: Will see out the season on loan at Bolton

The 24-year-old striker has joined the Trotters from Sky Bet Championship rivals Middlesbrough on an agreement which will take him through to the end of the season.

There has been no indication from Boro that his days at the Riverside Stadium are over, with there still two years left to run on his contract in the north east.

Jutkiewicz is, however, eager to play his football where he feels most comfortable and believes he has found a 'better fit' at the Reebok Stadium.

He told the Bolton Evening News: "I have not had any talks yet - I leave the talking to everyone else, to be honest.

"But I am enjoying it here and would love to stay here for longer than my loan period.

"Straight away I felt comfortable at Bolton and it feels like a good place for me. I would really like to organise something that will allow me to stay for longer.

"I am here until the end of the season so hopefully we can sort something out to make it go longer.

"It's a strange one and sometimes things don't work out for whatever reason at some places. It just seems to be a better fit here.

"But I have had numerous Middlesbrough fans writing on Twitter about it. They have been really supportive."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
