Zat Knight recently stated that he was open to staying with Bolton beyond the end of the season but didn’t seem to hopeful that would be the case.

Given his recent form though Dougie Freeman isn’t ruling out a new deal being offered the 33-year-old, if he signs it though remains another matter.

The Bolton boss has joked that offering him ‘six-week contracts’ could be the way to get the best out of the former England international defender.

Freedman told the Bolton News: ‘Big Zat Knight is playing the best football I have ever seen him play and he’s fighting for the cause – whatever that might be, he’s fighting for it.

‘He wants to sit down and he’s doing himself no harm at all. I’m forming that idea with one or two players right now in my mind.

‘If that’s the way it’s going to go I’ll be giving Zat six-week contracts from now on because he’s been outstanding.’

Knight existing deal expires in the summer and he would be free to move on with a move to the American MLS reported recently.

Will he stay? Do you want him to, let us know below?

Mr Ecky sends his best to the Vital Bolton community, he’s currently not well, he’ll be back as soon as possible and in the meantime, he’s got a staff writer to fill in for him.

If anyone has something to share in the meantime (this gives a genuine Bolton point of view from a Bolton fan!) feel free to fire an email through.

Please include your username so I can put that to it though.
