As reported by STV, former Bolton Wanderers favourite Chris Eagles has been given at trial with SPL side Ross County, managed of course by former Wanderers manager and Barclays Premier League enthusiast Owen Coyle.

An article published by STV states:

"Manager Owen Coyle is looking to improve his squad after taking over at the Dingwall club in September. He has now turned to a player he signed twice while managing in England.

"We've brought Chris Eagles in on a week's training with us," Coyle told STV. "He's a player that I know well from my time at Burnley and Bolton.

"That's to have a look at Chris within this week and see if there's anything he's got that can enhance our squad as we move towards the January window."

Coyle brought Eagles to Bolton back in 2011 for a fee of around £1.5 million. The former Manchester United winger went on to score 19 goals in 106 games for Bolton.

After falling out of favour with Dougie Freedman, Eagles left Bolton on a free in 2014, and has since gone on to play for Charlton Athletic, Bury, Accrington Stanley and Port Vale.

Eagles has now been given a week trial in the hopes of a reunion with the manager who he arguably played his best football for.
