According to Press Association journalist Nick Mashiter, Bolton Wanderers could move for Rangers FC midfielder, Harry Forrester.

Mashiter stated in a tweet:

Former Aston Villa youth player Harry Forrester, 26, has been told he is available to leave for free, with manager Pedro Caixinha not keen on the attacking midfielder. Forrester began his career with Villa, before moving on to sign for Brentford FC in 2011.

Two years later, Forrester moved to Doncaster Rovers, and moved two years after that up North to join Rangers FC.

Comfortable as an attaching midfielder or on the wing, Forrester could be a potential replacement for Josh Vela, who is rumoured to be looking at a lengthy time out injured.

As you know, Vela was stretchered off on Sunday, having suffered ankle ligament damage. It's a blow to lose such a key player so early into the season.

Forrester has plenty of experience in the Football League, having scored 16 goals in 102 games in League One.

Despite having two years left to run on his current deal, Forrester looks destined to leave Ibrox, with Charlton Athletic and Burton Albion also said to be interested.

Would Harry Forrester be a good short term replacement for Josh Vela? Let us know in the comments box below.
