Bolton boss Lee: No Anelka bids

Anelka has been linked with several clubs this summer including Arsenal, Valencia and Manchester United.

He told the Manchester Evening News: “We have not received any offers for the services of Nicolas Anelka.

“We are well aware of the speculation about him, but he was rested for the Tranmere game due to a recurrence of a foot injury.

“If he is fit, he will play against Espanyol on Wednesday, buy only if he is fit. It is all about getting him fit and ready for the Newcastle United game (on August 11th).”
