News has been spreading across social media that Bolton Wanderers are potentially going to sign not one, but two new players.

And as the Bolton News just posted, one of the names linked is former West Bromwich Albion, Cardiff City and Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie.

Odemwingie, now 35, has been without a club since the summer after his release from Stoke. Last season, Odemwingie also had a brief loan spell with Bristol City, whom he scored for on his debut against Bolton in that awful 6-0 defeat.

The Nigerian international had looked to be joining Hull City, but Steve Bruce's departure derailed the move.

Last Saturday, Odemwingie was a guest on Soccer AM, and stated he would be willing to drop down to League One to play football. And as it turns out, it's Bolton who have made the shock swoop.

Odemwingie also told The Sun:

''I am prepared to drop down in the short term until the summer, and hopefully by then I will have attracted interest from the Premier League or one of the European leagues.

I am not afraid to be on League One money; I’m just a big kid who misses football.

I want to serve a purpose and show people you don’t have to give up, that I will absolutely 100 per cent go down a level – there is nothing to hide.''

Peter Odemwingie will meet with club representatives today.

Another player linked is former West Ham United and MK Dons right back Jordan Spence. Spence, 26, has been without a club since leaving Dons in the Summer.

News broke a couple weeks ago that the club were looking at bringing in a new full back due to Lewis Buxton's injury.

It's not known whether the recent form of Lawrie Wilson has put Bolton off signing Spence.
