Bolton outcast Fadiga confident over next move
Khalilou Fadiga's agent insists he will have no trouble in finding the midfielder a new club and that his exit from Bolton had nothing to do with previous medical worries.
The 31-year-old Senegal international was one of a number of players, including Jay Jay Okocha, Bruno N'Gotty and Matt Jansen, told they would not be offered a contract for next season earlier this week.
Former Auxerre and Inter Milan man Fadiga arrived at the Reebok Stadium in September 2004 but the start of his spell with Wanderers was disrupted by a heart scare before a Carling Cup game against Tottenham the following month.
He had a loan spell at Coca-Cola Championship outfit Derby at the start of the season but returned to make 13 appearances either side of Christmas.
The 1-1 draw with Wigan in February was his final appearance for Bolton and manager Sam Allardyce has chosen not to extend his stay.
However, the player's agent Charles Collymore is adamant there are no long-term health concerns over Fadiga.
Collymore said: 'I'm very optimistic about Khali's return to top-flight football as soon as possible.
'He hasn't been released for any other reason than he's come to the end of his contract so we're looking at other options.
'He hasn't been fired or sacked and he's a bit upset with the way that's been reported.
'We're working hard to try to find an alternative offer and we're optimistic about doing that over the course of the next month or so.
'He's still got an awful lot to offer. He was the captain of his national team a year ago and maybe playing for more of a footballing side might help him.
'He's fit, healthy, raring to go and looking for something new, preferably in England.'
