According to reports from today’s Daily Star, Bolton Wanderers have made a loan offer for Cardiff City winger Anthony Pilkington.

The Daily Star also report that QPR have also approached Cardiff to see if they could loan Pilkington.

It was only last week that HITC Sport had linked Wanderers to Pilkington.

Obviously, it’s all hearsay until a move is made official.

Pilkington is an experienced player, having played 377 games across all four divisions in England, scoring 75 goals.

The winger is also an international, having played nine times and scored once for the Republic of Ireland.

With Sammy Ameobi, Will Buckley, Craig Noone and Filipe Morais, not to mention some of the youth players, Wanderers probably have enough wide men.

I’d rather see the club go and sign another striker, as Aaron Wilbraham doesn’t look to be able to compete at Championship level any more.

Wanderers also signed versatile midfielder Harry Charsley on loan from Everton yesterday, so would Wanderers be best concentrating on other positions to improve?

Do you think Anthony Pilkington would be a good signing for Wanderers? Let us know in the comments box below.
