Seems the new guy shops at the same places as the old guy....

In an amusing turn of events, new Bolton Wanderers boss Neil Lennon has been linked with a familiar, well-trodden path taken by his hapless predecessor Dougie Freedman.

Lennon and Bolton Wanderers have today been spoken of as a potential destination for well-travelled Scottish winger Barry Bannan.

The BEN has reported that the Scottish left winger has been on the fringes of expert manager Neil Warnock's squad so far this season, leading to just one Premier League appearance.

The 24-year-old Airdrie-born attacker reportedly is eager to find regular football to keep him in the frame for his country and it is understood he is being monitored by a number of clubs in the second tier.

Deposed Whites boss Dougie Freedman had also been keen on Bannan, who spent time on loan previously at Blackpool, Derby County and Leeds United.

Bannan made his debut for the Scotland national team against Faroe Islands on 16 November 2010 and made his first competitive start for Scotland in Euro 2012 qualifier against Lithuania in September 2011. He has since gone on to make 18 appearances for his national side.
