Bolton boss Owen Coyle feels the club have made sound use of the funds that came from Gary Cahill's sale to Chelsea.

Since Cahill left for a reported £7million, Coyle has brought in another centre-half in United States international Tim Ream, 24, from the New York Red Bulls, and 20-year-old England Under-21s striker Marvin Sordell from Watford.

And given their respective ages, Coyle believes their acquisition also represents good business, and said: "I think we all accepted that Gary was going to go and once it was decided on the football side that it would happen, what we had to do on the business side was look to try to maximise the situation that we were in."
