WANDERERS say they are still hopeful of a “satisfactory resolution” to the Christian Doidge saga.

Forest Green Rovers chairman Dale Vince condemned Ken Anderson last night for breaking promises when he signed the 26-year-old striker on a loan-to-buy deal in September.

The Gloucestershire club has now recalled Doidge and do not plan to allow him to return to Wanderers, where he had previously agreed a three-year contract.

Anderson has been silent for nearly a month – but a brief missive issued by the club this morning refused to accept the deal could not be revived.

It read: “Bolton Wanderers Football Club is aware of the statement issued by Forest Green Rovers chairman Dale Vince.

“We are disappointed to read the statement as the club has been in dialogue with Mr Vince and Forest Green Rovers over this situation.

“We are hopeful that a satisfactory resolution will follow.”

Doidge has recently bought a house in the Bolton area – but was told on Thursday that he could not be registered for Saturday’s FA Cup game against Walsall because the club was in a registration embargo.

Regardless, sources at the club were confident the issue would be sorted this week – briefing local media on Saturday.

After hearing Wanderers' statement, Forest chief Vince tweeted The Bolton News' chief football writer to say.

Vince had this statement on Sunday evening.

“From Monday morning, Christian Doidge is back with FGR,” he said. “We've taken the decision to recall him after his loan agreement expired last week amid continual contractual breaches by Bolton Wanderers.

“It became clear to us that Bolton entered into a contract to loan and then buy Christian last August without the means to honour it, and perhaps the intention to do so as well. They haven't even paid his wages for the last four months (we have).

It's not just FGR that have been let down badly by Bolton, but Christian too.

“Bolton's Chairman, Ken Anderson, made a lot of promises on the last day of the transfer window, both to Christian and FGR, and has kept none of them.

“This is all his work and from talking to Ken he feels immune from the consequences - but some of these promises are written in legally binding contracts, and we'll be pursuing them.

“When the dust settles, we'll talk to the EFL (English Football League about how they regulate clubs like Bolton. They already regulate the club to a degree, controlling all TV monies to make sure that football debts get paid.

“Hard not to wonder whether the league could also have a role in approving the terms of any contracts entered into - to make sure that they are actually within the means of the club. We had no way to know, but the EFL should have the inside view on that.

“And finally (for now...) - Disappointing as it is to see this go pear shaped, both for FGR and Christian, I'm also excited by the prospect of the second half of the season with Christian back with us. I'm sure all FGR fans everywhere will join me in welcoming him back.”
