Antoni Sarcevic had not opened fresh contract talks at Bolton Wanderers but said his time at the club had been the best of his career just weeks before he moved to Stockport County.
Sarcevic was in the last year of his two-year deal at Wanderers which he signed when he joined the club in the summer of 2020 as one of Ian Evatt’s first signings at the University of Bolton Stadium.
The 29-year-old’s deal at the club was due to run out in the summer of 2022 as things stood.
He has today completed a shock move to National League side Stockport County and agreed a deal at Edgeley Park until 2024.
Sarcevic last spoke about his future at the club at the end of September before he faced one of his previous clubs in the form of Shrewsbury Town.
Ahead of that encounter little over three weeks ago, the Manchester Evening News had asked the now former Bolton captain about his future at the club and if talks had opened over a fresh contract.
Sarcevic confirmed that none had taken place at that stage, but believed that if this season was to be his last at Wanderers, then he confidently proclaimed that his time at the club had been the best of his football career.
He said: “No, nothing. That’s not for me to say. If this year is my last year at Bolton Wanderers, it’s been probably the best time in my football career.
“That’s football. I get that question, but for me, I just want to concentrate on the pitch stuff and concentrate on what we’re doing this year.”
His last game for Bolton proved to be earlier this week after he came off the bench in the 3-0 loss on the road to Plymouth Argyle.
Sarcevic scored a total of 11 goals in 52 games for Wanderers after joining the club last summer and captained Bolton to promotion out of League Two last season.
He could well make his Hatters debut tomorrow against Notts County in the National League.Internet Explorer Channel Network
