Campo goes as Bolton release trio

Bolton have released Ivan Campo, Stelios Giannakopoulos and Andranik Teymourian but hope to persuade keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen to stay at the club.

Jaaskelainen and defender Ricardo Gardner's contracts expire at the end of June but boss Gary Megson is hopeful of extending their stay at the Reebok.

"Jussi and Ricardo have been excellent servants and are still very much part of my future plans," said Megson.

"Hopefully, we can get them secured on new deals as soon as possible."

The midfield trio have all been released as Bolton prepare for next season's Premier League campaign after escaping relegation by a single point.

"Ivan, Stelios and Andranik have all done well for Bolton and I'd like to express my gratitude to them," Megson added on the club's website.

"It's time for them to move on and I wish them all the best."

After a successful loan period, Spaniard Campo, 34, joined Bolton from Real Madrid in 2003, the same year Greek star Stelios arrived at the club.

Iranian international Andranik joined Bolton after impressing during the 2006 World Cup but has only made nine appearances this season.

Keeper Jaaskelainen missed the latter half of Bolton's season after he injured his back while warming up for Bolton's Uefa Cup tie against Sporting Lisbon on 6 March.

Long-serving Jamaican Gardner completed his ninth campaign with Bolton at the end of the season.
