Reebok tells Bolton Skipper to forget about Gulf Deal, Qatar Approach Under Review

The manafer of Bolton Wanderers, Sam Allardyce has told Jay-Jay Okocha to forget about securing a bumper pay-day in Qatar. The Nigerian Bolton skipper, 32, was offered £3million to play for Middle East outfit Al-Rayyan. But Okocha has two years left to run on his present Reebok deal.

And boss Allardyce said: “The sort of money on offer in Qatar is impossible to turn down for any human being.

“Greed has nothing to do with it. If somebody is offered those amounts, you have to be interested. But Qatar clubs take big players like Jay-Jay when they come to the end of their contracts. That’s why they pay them big money. But Jay- Jay is contracted to us and, unless there is a hefty transfer fee involved, we wouldn’t consider it.”

Meanwhile, the chairman of Bolton Wanderers, Phil Gartside told his club's official website: "Jay Jay is a vital asset to our football club and we have not received any offers for him whatsoever. He's the captain and one of our most important players. He's under contract to this football club and there's no way we would want him to leave, especially with the season only just commencing. Also, we will be investigating the possibility of an illegal approach."
