United States National Team midfielder Stuart Holden has extended his contract with Bolton Wanderers through the 2013 season. Holden has already become a regular in the Bolton starting eleven this season.
"I was given an opportunity by the manager to show that I can play at this level and I'm extremely grateful for that," Bolton told the club's official site. "The confidence that he has shown in me has really allowed me to push on. I had a bit of a setback with the injury last season, but that made me more determined to make an impact when I came back for pre-season. I've had a good start to this campaign and I'm looking forward to continuing playing and helping Bolton as much as I possibly can."
