MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Stuart Holden, whose most recent comeback bid has been limited to one League Championship appearance a month ago, is off on loan from Bolton Wanderers to struggling Sheffield Wednesday through April 24. Holden did get good news as Bolton manager Dougie Freedman said the club wants Holden back next season. His contract expires at end of the current season.

Since Holden's two knee operations, Bolton has fallen from the Premier League to the League Championship, where it is currently tied for eighth place, five points out of the playoff zone.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, is a point out of the relegation zone in the League Championship.

“This is the best move for Stuart," tweeted Freedman. "We had a good chat and I informed him that we want him with us next season."

(Bolton, on the other hand, confirmed it won't be offering long-time captain Kevin Davies a new contract.)

The move to loan out Holden coincided with the signings of Danny Butterfield from Southampton and Robert Hall from West Ham United, both on loan through the end of the season.
