Pedersen Could Review His Options

Last updated : 01 January 2004 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers striker Henrik Pedersen has said the imminent arrival of a new striker at the club may force him to consider a move back to his homeland in the future.

The 28-year old, who finished joint top scorer last season is under contract until the summer of 2005 but he has seen appearances this season in the starting line up at the Reebok Stadium few and far between due to the arrivals of Kevin Davies and Mario Jardel during the summer and admits he has been disappointed at the lack of opportunities

He told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: “Here in Bolton things don’t look to be going my way. And as my old club Silkeborg aren’t playing in the SAS-Liga the only interesting clubs for me in Denmark are Brondby and FC Copenhagen.

“Having said that, there’s still a long way before I can say I’m going home.”

Pedersen was one of Bolton's most important players in December despite making only one start. He scored an vital equaliser in the league draw against Arsenal and also scored the winner in the Carling Cup Quarter Final against Southampton. His assist against Chelsea set up a winning last minute goal whilst he was also one of the few players to come out with any credit during the Boxing Day defeat by Liverpool when he netted a late consolation.
