Wolves apparently open talks for Sam Ricketts

Bolton Wanderers have already seen a few players go out this summer in Kevin Davies, Marcos Alonso, and a few others. A new report from the Bolton News says that Sam Ricketts could be added to the list as Wolverhampton Wanderers have opened talks with the Trotters for the versatile defender.

Ricketts made 40 appearances last season in all competitions for club and country, playing right back, center back, and left back at various points of last season. He has made 114 total appearances for Bolton Wanderers after being signed by Gary Megson in 2009 for a fee just north of £2 million. Ricketts, primarily a right-sided defender, had been instrumental in plugging holes in Bolton's defense.

Bolton Wanderers have already added Marc Tierney and Alex Baptiste to their ranks, with the latter not yet confirmed, as well as young defender Hayden White. However, Dougie Freedman would still need to add at least one more fullback to fill on in the left, given how sparse the Trotters are in that area.

One can't imagine that his asking price would be too high, given Ricketts' age (31 going on 32) and Wolves, now a League One team, won't have too much money to spend. Ricketts has one year left on his current deal.
