Bolton ends interest in signing Denilson

Bolton manager Gary Megson is no longer interested in signing former Brazil international Denilson.
The 31-year-old forward, renowned for his flamboyant dribbling skills and once the most expensive player in the world, is out of contract with Brazilian side Palmeiras.
But after assessing him in training, Megson decided he was not the type of player he needed at the current time.
"It wasn't a trial, because that is a bit demeaning for a player of that class," Megson said Thursday. "We got a call saying, 'Would we like to have a look at him?' He wasn't fit, but his class and quality was there for all to see.
"But there are other parts of his game that we didn't feel we would be able to use to our advantage and would be able to complement everyone else."
