Tal Ben Haim insists he is committed to Bolton despite rejecting a new deal.
Bolton defender Tal Ben Haim insists he is committed to the club despite rejecting a new deal at The Reebok Stadium.
The Israeli international's current deal expires at the end of the season and he could leave for nothing next summer.
Bolton are keen to tie down the talented defender to a new long-term deal to prevent losing him on a free transfer.
Trotters chief Sam Allardyce admitted earlier this month that a number of clubs made enquires for the central defender in the transfer window and interested parties are sure to be watching developments at Bolton closely.
Ben Haim has refused to rule out staying at Bolton and he is adamant he will continue to give his all despite the contract stand-off.
"I want everybody to know that I am absolutely committed to the club," Ben Haim told The Bolton News.
"I give my heart in every game.
"We speak with the chairman and we see what is going on.
"It takes time but, anyway, I have a contract until the end of the season and I am absolutely committed to the club and I give everything in each game.
"I like the club and I am committed to the club at least until the end of this season, and I will come to every game to give 100 percent."
