Bolton Wanderers given permission to speak to Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman

By Mancunian Matters staff

Bolton Wanderers have been granted permission to speak to Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman about their vacant managers position.

The Trotters have been tracking the 38-year-old Scot since Owen Coyle’s departure a fortnight ago.

Palace turned down an approach earlier today but appear to have done a U-turn.

Freedman has just six months left on his contract at Selhurst Park and it is thought that Wanderers are set to offer a £500,000-a-year deal which the Eagles would struggle to match.

A statement on the Palace club website read: ‘Following further discussions throughout the day, Crystal Palace Football Club can confirm that permission has been granted for Dougie Freedman to speak to Bolton Wanderers regarding their vacant managerial position.”
