Reports in Scotland suggest that Neil Lennon has set his sights on bringing Aberdeen right back Shaleum "Shay" Logan, to Bolton Wanderers. The defender made this year's SPL Team of the Season, a feat comparable to his second placed finish in the Year 8 long jump on Sports Day in 1999.

The 27 year old has had an illustrious career thus far, appearing in loan spells for Grimsby Town, Scunthorpe United and local bestest fwends Tranmere Rovers. He also played for both Stockport teams between 2007-2011, appearing for County on loan in 2008 and Manchester City, his boyhood team, who he made one league appearance for in his four years at the club.

A Wythenshawe lad, Logan moved to then-League 1 Brentford in 2011, making 90 appearances before moving to Aberdeen in 2014.  Now at the age of 27, he seems to have reached something of a peak in his career, impressing this season in his 35 appearances, scoring 3 goals in the process.

This makes sense. The team lacks a natural right back, and the vast majority of Wanderers fans want to see Josh Vela in a more advanced role. Make it happen, Lenny.
