Kevin Nolan joins Newcastle from Bolton

Kevin Nolan is set to join Newcastle United from Bolton Wanderers for £4m in a shock move. The 26-year-old Bolton captain is reported to have passed a medical and agreed personal terms at Newcastle.

With Bolton fans already targeting club manager Gary Megson for the team's poor form, it looks as if the former West Brom manager has committed harakiri by letting the supporters' favourite player join fellow relegation battlers Newcastle.

Bolton signed young midfielder Mark Davies from Wolves earlier in the week and according to the Guardian need to balance the books. But selling Nolan could mark the beginning of the end for Megson at the Reebok as well as jeopardizing Bolton's Premier League status.
