Report: Bolton agree loan deal for Southampton left back, maybe

Richard Heathcote

A brand new report from Sky Sports says that Dougie Freedman has agreed a deal for Southampton left back Danny Fox. The move is a bid to not only boost Bolton's defensive presence but to also get a natural left back into the mix following Marc Tierney's injury that will keep him out for months with a fractured foot.

Danny Fox is a 27-year-old former England U21 and Scotland international who has fallen out of favor at St. Mary's under Mauricio Pochettino with the emergence of 18-year-old left back Luke Shaw.

Fox has plenty of experience in the Championship, spending the 2010/11 season at Burnley before moving to Southampton the following summer and helping them win promotion at the end of the 2011/12 campaign. Since Southampton rose to the Premier League, Fox has struggled to hold a spot down, making 21 appearances in the league in in 2012/13 and having only appeared once in the league this season.

According to the Sky Sports report, the loan will go for three months with Bolton having an option to make the move permanent in the January transfer window.

Update: Marc Iles of the Bolton News says there's nothing in the story.
