According to reports from The Bristol Post, Bolton Wanderers are interested in Bristol City goalkeeper, Frank Fielding.

The report from The Post states:

“Bristol City are mulling over interest in goalkeeper Frank Fielding.

The City no.1 is attracting interest from north west Championship clubs Bolton Wanderers, Wigan and Blackburn, according to Bristol Live’s sources.

Fielding has been at Ashton Gate since 2013 and could be interested in a move back to the north of England after coming through the ranks at Blackburn Rovers.

The former Derby shot-stopper might also be tempted to link up with former team-mates Mark Little and Aaron Wilbraham at the Macron Stadium with 30-year-old Fielding maintaining good contact with the now Trotters.”

30 year old goalkeeper Frank Fielding has played 174 times for Bristol City since joining in 2013, including 46 games this season.

Fielding has also previously played for Derby County, and made twelve appearances for the England U21s.

Wanderers have released second choice goalkeeper Mark Howard this week, but will have Ben Amos back after his loan with Charlton Athletic.

Bristol City have expressed interested in Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, so Fielding might lose his number one spot.

If Wanderers can’t sell Amos, do they really need another goalie? Promising youngsters Jake Turner and James Aspinall will mean Bolton have four goalkeepers.

Perhaps if they go out on loan, but then would Fielding want to compete with two other senior goalkeepers? Is Fielding better than Ben Alnwick?

Do you think Frank Fielding would be an improvement on Wanderers’ current goalkeepers? Let us know in the comments box below.
