PARKY IS SET FOR NEW DEAL AT BOLTON
BOLTON have opened talks with manager Phil Parkinson over a contract extension.
The 49-year-old former Bradford City boss took over at the Macron Stadium last summer, signing a two-year deal upon his arrival.
Parkinson’s first campaign in charge of the Trotters proved an unqualified success as he helped the club back into the Championship at the first time of asking, sealing a second-place finish in League One last term.
Chairman Ken Anderson has confirmed that he plans to sit down at the negotiating table with Parkinson’s representatives and expects it all to be straightforward.
“We are in discussion with Phil about a new contract,” said Anderson.
“We have made an offer and I am due to meet with his agent, but we’re very hopeful something will be sorted soon.”
Anderson believes Parkinson is the perfect man to lead his team for years to come.
He added: “I think you only have to listen to the players to see how they relate to Phil and his staff, and that is very satisfying as a chairman.”
SUCCESS: Phil Parkinson
