Michael Kightly officially moves to Burnley as Bolton's attempts are fruitless

Chris Brunskill

That's it. The deadline has come and passed. The clock has rung. Clubs around Bolton Wanderers in both the table and locale have spent millions and/or got loans in to bolster their squads as the Trotters attempted to complete a pair of late deals for a pair of loan players. The two in question were Crystal Palace's Peter Ramage and Stoke City's Michael Kightly. The former officially moved to Barnsley on a season-long loan earlier in the evening and the latter has now completed his own move.

Bolton's rivals, Burnley, have completed a season-long loan deal at the death for Michael Kightly, killing any chance of Wanderers resurrecting the deal in the upcoming loan window.

With an international break taking up the next two weeks, Dougie Freedman and Bolton Wanderers have a bit of time to figure something out in regards to bolstering the squad. According to the Bolton News earlier in the evening, the deals fell through due to a lack of available finances to Dougie Freedman thanks to the fact that no players left the club in any shape or form over the course of the day.

It's clear that the issues persist for the Trotters but rather than panic buy, there is a bit of a respite at the Reebok. Let's hoe they make it count.
