Midfielder leaves club on loan

Bolton Wanderers have today allowed young midfielder Gerald Forschelet to move back to France on loan following his failure to break into the Bolton first team having been at the Reebok Stadium for over 12 months.

The 21-year old Tahiti-born midfielder has joined French Second Division club Chateux on a year long loan agreement which is expected to be made permanent if the player impresses.

Forschelet, who was signed from AS Cannes in February 2002 for an undisclosed sum, made the substitutes bench for the Premiership game with Newcastle United that same month and has been a regular in the Reserve Team ever since. Wanderers had fought off competition from many clubs such as West Ham United and Glasgow Rangers to sign the youngster.

However he has found chances limited due to the number of midfielders such as Jay-Jay Okocha, Kevin Nolan, Per Frandsen and Ivan Campo who all play in the same position and earlier in the year he had unsuccesful trials with clubs in Germany. Could returning to France resurrect the players career.

We will him well in his loan stint with his new club
