Transfer Gossip: Bolton Wanderers chase Dutch defender

Could Bolton be about to add to their defence?

According to Fox Sports Netherlands, Bolton Wanderers are keen to sign Dutch centre back Nick Kuipers.

The article states (in a translation):

"Nick Kuipers is still high on the list of Bolton Wanderers, FOX Sports knows.

The 24-year-old captain of MVV has an expiring contract with the current number four in the Jupiler League.

The central defender was two years ago internship at the English club, which currently has a view of promotion to the Championship.

Besides Bolton have Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton informed the Coopers services.

MVV Maastricht hopes to convince to a longer stay and soon comes to the table with the youth product."

Kuipers should be a name familiar to Wanderers fans, having been a trialist in January 2015. It was heavily rumoured that Wanderers would sign Kuipers on a free transfer in the Summer of 2015, although nothing ever came of the rumours.

Nick Kuipers decided to stay with Dutch Second Division side MVV Maastricht, where he has been his entire career.

Kuipers has scored 5 times in 145 games for MVV Maastricht.
