Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos admits the signing of Victor Valdes ended his career at Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old will spend a further month on loan at Bolton and expects to leave United permanently in the summer.

You could say Victor Valdes' arrival was the final nail in the coffin.

Pre-season, I was told I was number two. With the cup games, if I'd got a sniff of that, that would have made it worthwhile sticking around for.

As soon as Victor was brought in, I was essentially demoted to fourth really - you've got to move on.

Clough goal enough for Bolton against Brighton

Zach Clough ensured Bolton returned to winning ways in the Sky Bet Championship with his sixth goal of the season as they defeated Brighton 1-0.

The 19-year-old striker only made his senior debut against Wigan in the FA Cup at the start of January and in those two months Clough has become Wanderers leading scorer, overshadowing the exploits of big name signings Emile Heskey and Eidur Gudjohnsen.

Bolton's win and Brighton's first defeat in five games lifted the Lancastrians up to 17th in the table and above their Sussex visitors.

Provisional squad: Lonergan, McNaughton, Dervite, Mills, Ream, Feeney, Danns, Moxey, Wheater, Hall, Trotter, Spearing, Vela, Gudjohnsen, Davies, Fitzsimons, Clough.

Bolton youngster thought Man United move was a joke

Andy Kellett could not believe that Manchester United wanted to sign him on loan for the rest of the season, before joining the Premier League club, according to Neil Lennon.

The Bolton defender thought he was returning to League Two Plymouth on loan, but will instead spend the coming months at Old Trafford.

"He hadn't got a clue. He was on his way to Plymouth. He thought I was winding him up," Bolton boss Lennon explained.

"It took a good five or 10 minutes. He wouldn't believe us. We told him to ring his father and we'd tell him, and once that happened I think it started to sink in.

"It's a great story but now he's got to knuckle down and learn."
