Report: Bolton in for West Ham's Rob Hall again, this time aiming for permanent move

Charlie Crowhurst

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Dougie Freedman is apparently interested in making another move for Rob Hall, hoping to bring the winger back to the Reebok on a permanent basis.

On the Football League's loan transfer deadline day, Bolton Wanderers were a very busy group. The club had sent Stu Holden to Sheffield Wednesday for a month-long loan and decided to bring in a pair of wide options to provide competition and increase depth in the squad. The first was the much-maligned Danny Butterfield, brought in to provide backup to Sam Ricketts. The second was young West Ham winger Robert Hall.

When all was said and done, Hall played a total of 37 minutes for Bolton Wanderers. He made the matchday 18-man squad on seven occasions but for six of those, Hall was an unused substitute. The seventh time, the final match of the season, the winger started the match but was taken off in the first half after everything went wrong for Bolton Wanderers.

In that match, prior to the introduction of Marvin Sordell and Bolton's eventual pair of first half stoppage time goals, Rob Hall provided the Trotters' most dangerous opportunity, testing Tangerines keeper Matt Gilks from a free kick that required a good save to stop it.

Hall, 19 years old, had spent the first half of the season on loan at Birmingham City where he made 13 appearances for the Blues, assisting on seven goals. The move was cut short following a groin injury and eventual hernia surgery. The lengthy recovery time was something that Bolton knew about and explains his slow start. Many outlets had called Hall's month on loan at Wanderers a "flop" but 37 minutes is far too little time to judge a player.

The winger still has one year left on his contract at Big Sam Allardyce's West Ham and as such, the Trotters would have to agree a fee for the young winger.
