Allardyce may be prepared to let Campo move on
Bolton manager Sam Allardyce wants Ivan Campo to stay at the Reebok Stadium but has indicated the Spanish star could move on if the price is right.
Campo, 31, returns from a three-match ban next week when the club are down on
numbers with Abdoulaye Faye, Radhi Jaidi and El-Hadji Diouf away on African
Nations Cup duty.
The former Real Madrid defensive midfielder, who is out of contract in the summer, has
been linked with a move to Real Mallorca.
Allardyce said: 'He won't be leaving until the end of his deal unless they
pay a lot of money for him. It might be a possibility for Ivan and he could sign
a contract for Real Mallorca now.
'But if not he should be trying to get back in the team, now he is fully fit.
He finishes his suspension which has affected him and us an awful lot.
'Hopefully he can take up the mantle after Watford when some players are away
and show us his old abilities and capabilities.
'That may then encourage us to give him a new contract at the end of the
season, which I would like to think would be the case.'
