Transfer News: Hyuga Tanner set to leave Bolton Wanderers

The Australian youngster is set to look for opportunities elsewhere

Burton Albion v Stoke City - Pre Season friendly

In an exclusive interview with FourFourTwo Australia, Bolton Wanderers U23 player Hyuga Tanner has announced he is set to leave Bolton Wanderers.

The youngster stated:

"Unfortunately the embargo has stopped me playing first-team football and I need to be out there getting some first-team experience," the 19-year old told FourFourTwo.

"So at the end of this season I'll be looking to go elsehwere and push for first-team action as the embargo doesn't seem to be getting lifted anytime.

"Hopefully I can find that here in the UK, because I love playing here but if it means to go somewhere abroad again that can be an option too."

Tanner moved to the UK from Australia to join Blackburn Rovers in 2014. In September 2016, Tanner joined Wanderers. So far, the 19 year old has made 24 appearances for David Lee's U23 side.

Under strict embargo rules, Tanner, alongside fellow former Blackburn youngster Sam Lavelle and the recently signed Jeff King, are unable to play for Wanderers' first team.

Last week, Ken Anderson failed to get striker Jeff King registered for the first team.

All three of the youngsters would probably have played some League One football this season if not for the embargo.
