As first published in The Daily Record, Bolton Wanderers are looking at a move for Partick Thistle centre back, Liam Lindsay.

The article states:

"Charlton have opened talks with Partick Thistle over a move for Liam Lindsay.

Record Sport understands the League One side have made contact with the Jags but face competition from Bolton who are also prepared to meet the club’s £750,000 price tag.

Addicks boss Karl Robinson is assembling a side to push for promotion to the Championship next season and negotiations have started in his bid to make the centre-half part of his plans.

Lindsay is the only player outside of the top two teams to make it into the PFA Scotland Premiership team of the year and his list of admirers has grown as has the clamour for the youngster to win his first Scotland cap.

Bolton will take a final look at the 21-year-old against St Johnstone this weekend before making their move but Record Sport understands Thistle are prepared to hold off on allowing their biggest asset to head south, with the player contracted until summer 2019."

Lindsay, 21, was previously linked with a move to Leeds United. The young defender has played 69 times for Partick, scoring eight goals.

Obviously, with a transfer fee involved, any move is dependent on the transfer embargo being lifted.
