Zat Knight joins Bolton Wanderers

Well, maybe this isn't a surprise, but it is a surprise. Zat Knight has joined Bolton in a three year deal.

There is nothing on the club site but The Mirror were reporting today that he headed back from Spain for a medical with Bolton before flying out to meet his new team in Holland. It looks like The Mirror were spot on.

Now, I praised the media department at our club yesterday, but why is it we always have to find out the important stuff about our club from other sources?

Does it really take much work to inform us of what is happening?

Anyway, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding Knight and him leaving does suggest that Martin O'Neill has a player lined up to replace him but Knight did a decent enough job for us and he is a Villa fan, so good luck to him.

Seeing as this has happened today I wouldn't be surprised if we were to learn fairly soon who his replacement is and I wouldn't be surprised if it was Distin.
