Bolton Wanderers are in much need of extra bodies as soon as possible, especially when considering the ever-lengthening injury crisis affecting our attack and midfield.
Several rumours are currently doing the rounds as the transfer deadline slams shut in exactly 12 hours from now, but there's very little in solid information - with Wanderers fans largely taking to Twitter to start silly rumours. Mainly surrounding former pantomime manager Dougie Freedman coming back to raid some of the trash he brought to the club.
So far the most realistic rumour of an incoming is Bolton being linked to a man dubbed 'the Bulgarian Lampard.' Not sure if that's because he's a free-scoring midfielder, he's going out with the 'Bulgarian Christine Bleakley,' or they just think he's a bit fat. Either way, Simeon Slavchev is a 21-year-old midfielder who joined Sporting Lisbon for 2.5m Euros in the summer, but has yet to play for his new side, having scored 15 goals in 52 games for Litex Lovech.
Wanderers have also been mentioned with a move for Rangers midfielder Nicky Law, but that move looks likely to depend on whether Chung-Yong Lee decides to leave the Macron. The Motherwell and Rotherham man has scored 16 goals in 49 games for the Scottish Championship side, but has been in fine form this season with six goals in 14 league games.
Other rumoured transfers include 19-year-old Carlisle midfielder Kyle Dempsey, who has four goals in 12 league games this season and looks a decent prospect.
Wanderers are also being linked to signing players that have previously or are currently on trial. One of those is big Dutch defender Nicholas Kuipers, from Maastricht, but that deal looked dead several weeks ago. Other names linked have been Northern Irish striker Daniel Hughes, who is apparently set for a second assessment with the club after impressing in a first, and Polish forward Kamil Wilczek, who has now departed the club.
