ANDRE Moritz has bid farewell to Wanderers fans after his contract at the club officially expired.

Although there is still a slim chance that the 27-year-old could return to Bolton next season, with an offer still on the table, there was an air of finality as he tweeted from his official account this afternoon.

The Brazilian wrote: “I want to thanks all the people who always supported me at #bwfc had a great time over there. Wish you all the best for this season!

“Hope to see you all soon, I'll be cheering for Bolton to come back to the prem. Thank you very much! All the best.”

The former Crystal Palace playmaker joined Wanderers last summer but struggled to win a regular starting place in Dougie Freedman’s starting line-up.

He suffered bad luck with injuries but still managed seven goals, making second-joint top scorer behind Jermaine Beckford.

It is understood that Moritz has turned down the chance of Champions League football with Cypriot title winners APOEL Nicosia and is now speaking with clubs in England and abroad.
