Holden set to sign one-year extension at Bolton

It’s looking likely that Stuart Holden will get another shot to prove his worth to Bolton Wanderers FC over a full season.

According to a report in England, Holden is set to sign a one-year contract with the club, keeping him at the Reebok Stadium through the end of the 2013-2014 season. The report states that he has written to the club to say he is in agreement with the contract, but won’t sign it until he has returned to England after the May/June U.S. Men’s National Team matches.

After spending over a year and a half on the sidelines, Holden made his Bolton return on January 15 in the FA Cup, featuring four times for the club and four for Sheffield Wednesday while on loan in March and April.

The 27-year-old midfielder was called up by U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann to the May/June camp, and currently Holden is awaiting the start of that camp by training with the Houston Dynamo to stay fit. The Scotland-born player has amassed 17 caps since 2009, but due to the injuries, hasn’t played for the national team once under Klinsmann.

What do you make of this news? Glad that Holden is staying at Bolton? Do you think he should have tried his luck somewhere else?
