The windows have been slammed shut (we're really not sure why you would, but yeah), the helicopters hovering between Liverpool and London have landed, and the fax machines (except for those in Turkey, France, Mexico, and Russia among a few other nations) are no longer whirring. Bolton Wanderers have brought in six players, spent a relatively paltry sum of money, and didn't lose a single player (that wasn't let go before preseason).
|Player||Former Team||Estimated Transfer Fee|
|Andy Lonergan||Leeds United||£200,000|
|Matt Mills||Leicester City||£2,000,000|
|Keith Andrews||West Bromwich Albion||Free|
|Benik Afobe||Arsenal||Season-Long Loan|
|Jay Spearing||Liverpool||Season-Long Loan|
|Player||Going To||Estimated Transfer Fee|
|Michael O'Halloran||Carlisle United||
Now, all is not lost. As a Championship side, Bolton are privy to a secondary loan transfer window. This window opens on September 8 and runs until November 25. Bolton have used two of their possible six loans on Spearing and Afobe.
What do you think of Bolton's acquisitions? Has Owen Coyle done enough to strengthen the side? What positions would you like to see filled? Let us know in the comments
