REMI Matthews hopes to hear soon on whether his two-year stay at Bolton Wanderers will continue.

The 26-year-old keeper is one of 13 senior professionals who are yet to hear whether the club will be offering them a new deal for next season.

Virtually ever-present last term, Matthews has had offers from clubs at home and abroad since the lockdown.

This time last year, administrators turned down an approach from Crystal Palace – and Matthews chose not to terminate his contract, staying with Wanderers in League One.

After re-signing Ali Crawford yesterday, Wanderers are expected to get in touch with the players they wish to re-sign within the next week.

“At the moment I’m just waiting,” Matthews said. “I don’t feel there is a huge rush because we don’t know when the season will start yet. Yes, it would be nice to nail something down early but there’s certainly been no need for me to jump into the first thing that comes my way.

“I’d like to think that in my position there will be other offers and that I will be able to weight up my options.

“I’d be happy to stay at Bolton if an offer came along – but equally if it’s my time to move on then you won’t hear me say a bad word about the place, I’d wish the club nothing but well in the future.

“I’ll always look for their results because even with everything we’ve been through I’ve enjoyed playing for Bolton. It’s a massive club – and that’s why I signed there, it’s why I stayed there.”

A full interview with Matthews will be printed in Monday’s edition of The Bolton News.
