According to Kent Live, Bolton Wanderers face competition from Sheffield United and Charlton Athletic for MK Dons midfielder, Ben Reeves.

The article states:

"Ben Reeves is weighing up his options - and the likelihood is he will opt for a Championship club. But there is still a chance he could move to Charlton Athletic as boss Karl Robinson is understood to have shown renewed interest in snapping up the MK Dons midfielder.

Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers are believed to be on Reeves' tail but Robinson - who met with Reeves soon after the end of last season - is hopeful he might still land the playmaker.

The left-footed Reeves is hot property and may feel his talents deserve showing off in the Championship but Kent Live understands the only League One club he would move to is Charlton, meaning Robinson is still in with a shout of securing a man he targeted at the start of the summer."

Northern Ireland international Ben Reeves, 25, is a free agent after his MK Dons contract expired at the end of last season.

The former Southampton youth player is still training with Dons, but has yet to sign a new deal. In four years at MK, Ben Reeves scored 32 goals in 135 games.

Comfortable playing in centre midfield and left midfield, Reeves could be a shrewd signing for Wanderers.
