According to an article on site hitc.com, Bolton Wanderers are one of five Championship teams keen on taking Real Madrid youngster and Norwegian international Martin Odegaard on loan.

Brighton & Hove Albion, Birmingham City, Ipswich Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers have also been linked.

Odegaard, still only 16, has  become frustrated at not being given an opportunity in the Real Madrid first team, and it's thought he would be open to a loan move to England in January.

Martin Odegaard made his debut for Strømsgodset on 13th April 2014, becoming the youngest player to feature in Tippeligaen, and became its youngest goalscorer on 16th May. After being a regular part of the team in his first season, Odegaard attracted the attention of many big European teams, including Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United, before signing for Real Madrid in January 2015.

On 23rd May 2015, he became the youngest player ever to represent Real Madrid, coming on as a substitute for Cristiano Ronaldo in a 7-3 win over Getafe.

Odegaard made his international debut for Norway against the United Arab Emirates on 27th August 2014, becoming the youngest debutant for the senior team at the age of 15 years and 253 days. On 13th October 2014, he became the youngest player to feature in a qualifying match for the UEFA European Championship.
