According to Sky sources (and an earlier tweet from Marc Iles), Bolton Wanderers are reportedly interested in Burton Albion striker, Liam Boyce.

Sky sports added the following:

“Bolton have made an enquiry for Burton striker Liam Boyce, according to Sky sources.

It is expected any deal would be a loan with a view to a permanent move in January.

However, it is understood Burton will resist any approach for the Northern Ireland international.”

The 27 year old Northern Ireland international has scored four times in seven games for Burton so far this season, one of which was a winner in the Carabao Cup against Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Boyce began his career with Cliftonville in Northern Ireland, and scored an impressive 76 goals in 158 games during two spells with the club either side of a short stint in Germany with Werder Bremen.

In 2014, Boyce moved to Scottish side Ross County.

After scoring over 50 goals in three years, Boyce moved to Burton Albion for a club record fee.
