EXPERIENCED centre-back Joel Lynch is no longer training at Southend United, Echosport understands.

The 33-year-old defender had been in with the Shrimpers for the past few weeks.

But Lynch is now believed to be training with Bolton Wanderers.

Lynch has lined up for Brighton, Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield Town, QPR during his career which has seen him make more than 420 appearances.

However, it now seems Lynch will not be coming to Roots Hall despite the Shrimpers having been keen to sign him.
