As reported by The Sun journalist Alan Nixon on twitter, Bolton Wanderers are interested in a move for Sheffield Wednesday defender, Liam Palmer.

Nixon stated on twitter:

“Bolton. Fancy Liam Palmer at Sheff Wed. Versatile.”

Liam Palmer, 25, has been at Sheffield Wednesday his entire career, aside from a loan spell with Tranmere Rovers in 2013. Palmer has plenty of experience playing in the Football League, with over 200 appearances to his name.

During his time with The Owls, Palmer helped the club gain promotion to the Championship in 2012. Palmer was also crowned Wednesday's Player of the Year for the 2013/2014 season.

Predominantly a right back, Palmer can also fill in at centre midfield, which is a position Wanderers actually need players in.

I'm assuming Wanderers would want to take Palmer on loan, unless Wednesday would be willing to let him go for free.

Bolton have been linked to plenty of defenders in recent weeks. Watford FC's Tommie Hoban, West Ham United's Reece Burke and Inter Milan's Isaac Donkor have all been linked with loan moves.

Reece Burke is widely expected to join Wanderers for the season, once West Ham have decided whether or not he joins the first team on their pre-season tour of Austria.

Wanderers have also signed Mark Little and Stephen Darby, so maybe a third right back isn't needed. Unless Parkinson sees Palmer purely as a midfielder.

So, what do you think? Would Liam Palmer be a good signing for Wanderers? Let us know in the comments box below.
