Swindon set to lose Doyle
LEAGUE Two top-scorer Eoin Doyle is set to stay in the fourth tier next season by leaving Swindon Town in order to sign for Bolton Wanderers.
Doyle, whose 25 goals helped Swindon become champions, had been offered a new contract by the Wiltshire Robins, but boss Richie Wellens says the 32-yearold will instead join Bolton.
“The money that Bolton are throwing around for a player of his age, and a three-year deal, we couldn’t get to that,” Wellens told BBC Radio Wiltshire.
“I believe he’s had a medical at Bolton, In fact, I’m surprised they’ve not released it yet. When you get to Eoin’s age and a threeyear deal is put in your lap, it’s very hard to turn down.”
Meanwhile, Swindon’s French defender Mathieu Baudry has signed a two-year extension to his deal with the club.
The 32-year-old said: “I feel like I’ve got a lot more to show than last season.”
