On Friday, a rumor emerged that Bolton Wanderers had an interest in 20-year-old Leicester City striker / fullback Jeffrey Schlupp. The Trotters had inquired about the possibility of taking the promising, versatile player on loan with a view to a potential £1.5 million move in the summer. According to Sky Sports, that deal has been turned down.
Schlupp, a German-born Ghana international (with one cap to his name), had been training with Manchester united for the last month and featured in a pair of U21 games for the Reds. If Bolton were to have any chance of getting him, it would have been only if United elected not to purchase him.
Following Paul Konchesky's injury midweek, Schlupp made a return to Leicester's starting lineup, having not played a game for the Foxes since November. He started the match in their 0-1 loss at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
Dougie Freedman had said in his prematch press conference that he has identified four targets he would like to bring in. Wait and see.
