Deal OFF: Whites Unable to Afford Dyrestam

No money, mo' problems - Matthew Lewis

Swedish defender unable to agree terms with Bolton

Bolton Wanderers have seen a move for Swedish defender Mikael Dyrestam collapse following a dramatic late turn of events.

Dyrestam has been without a club since leaving IFK Göteborg at the end of the 2013 season. Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman had reportedly been impressed during a week's trial at the club.

It was reported in the BEN that the 22 year old defender was available on a free transfer, but, unknown to Wanderers, the Swedish club were owed "development fee", reportedly in the region of £300,000, which is seemingly out of the club's financial capabilities.

Dyrestam was believed to have recovered sufficiently from a serious knee injury, and his agent was booked to arrive at the Wanderers training complex at Euxton at the back end of last week to iron out terms on a reported three year contract at the club.

The collapse of this deal leaves the club without a genuine left-back, a situation they have been in since Marc Tierney broke his leg back in October, with American centre half Tim Ream filling in ever since.
