Bolton Wanderers have today announced their retained list following the end of the 2011/12 season.
Kevin Davies has signed a new one-year contract until the summer of 2013 and Sam Ricketts has signed a new two-year deal until the summer of 2014.
Discussions regarding new contracts with Jussi Jaaskelainen and Zat Knight are on-going.
Gretar Steinsson, Paul Robinson, Sean Davis, Robbie Blake, Ricardo Gardner, Ivan Klasnic, Mark Connolly, Tope Obadeyi, Rhys Bennett, Dino Fazlic and Tom Eckersley have all left the football club after their contracts expired.
Tuncay, Dedryck Boyata and Ryo Miyaichi have all returned to their respective parent clubs following the completion of their loans spells.
Nigel Reo-Coker has decided to activate a release clause in his contract.
Manager Owen Coyle said: “I was clear with Nigel. I asked him straight away whether he wanted to stay and be a part of what we are going to do next season.”He was honest and up front with us, because that is the type of man he is, and said that he wanted to exercise the clause in his contract, and so we wish him well.
“I would also like to thank the players that are leaving the club for their work at Bolton Wanderers. We wish them all well.
“One of those is Ricardo Gardner, who has been with the football club for 14 years. He has offered incredible service to Bolton Wanderers and I’d like to personally thank him for all of his efforts, particularly during the time I have worked with him.”
