Kevin Davies: Last season at the Reebok

The striker moved to the Trotters in the summer of 2003 on a free transfer from Southampton.

Davies has racked up over 400 appearances, scoring 84 goals, for Bolton in all competitions but will end his time at the Reebok when his current deal expires in June 2013.

In October 2010, Davies earned international recognition as a 33-year-old, winning his only England cap in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro at Wembley.

Manager Dougie Freedman said: "Kevin Davies is and always will be a Wanderers legend.

"I want to be fair to him as regards his future, as he deserves it. This decision means that he is now free to sort himself out with a new club in plenty of time for next season.

"Being the type of man Kevin is, we sat down and had a chat about the future. He wants to carry on playing, and playing regularly. He has that desire to continue and this is the best move for him.

"I would like to thank him for his complete support and utter professionalism since I arrived.

"He never gives anything less than 100 percent in training, or when called on for first team duties.

"He will continue to be available for selection for the remaining games of the season."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

The Bitter Taste Of Arsenal Déjà Vu

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
