Bundesliga interest for Bolton Wanderers' Hungary keeper Adam Bogdan could be cut off at the Mainz
GERMAN club Mainz have been warned Adam Bogdan will not be leaving Wanderers on the cheap.
Reports suggest a lofty price tag of £2million has been put on the highly-rated Hungary international, who has 12 months remaining on his contract with the Whites.
Mainz made contact with Wanderers through a third party last week but it is understood they have not yet made a serious offer for the 26-year-old keeper.
Wanderers insist they are not actively looking to sell Bogdan, who is currently the longest-serving player on the first-team books having been with the club for the last seven years.
Dougie Freedman confirmed at the end of last season he would like to extend the keeper’s contract, if financially possible.
But sources close to the player claim he wants to keep his options open for now – and the lure of European football with Mainz, who finished seventh in the Bundesliga last season could tempt him.
Wanderers have another experienced option in Andy Lonergan, who is also in the final year of his deal, and are also considering a short-term offer to bring Arran Lee-Barrett back to the club following the expiry of his contract.
Freedman also recruited ex-Crystal Palace youngster Robert Fitzsimons in the summer, although he will work with the development squad for now.
Bogdan is due to fly out with the rest of the squad tomorrow for their 10-day tour of Scandinavia.
The team will play their first game against Brondby on Thursday evening.
