According to reports from The Sun writer Alan Nixon, Brighton & Hove Albion have put another offer in for Bolton Wanderers starlet, Luca Connell.

The snippet from The Sun states that the South Coast side have offered £300,000 for Connell, in the hopes of beating Burnley and Southampton to his signature.

Personally, that offer seems fairly low, considering the impact Connell has made already in a small number of games. I’d hope that there would be plenty of clauses included, but of course I’d rather have him stay.

What’s troubling for Wanderers is his contract situation & I really do hope that the club can tie him down to a long term professional deal.

Let’s hope the knock he took yesterday isn’t too serious & he can be back playing soon.

Another bit of Wanderers news in The Sun relates to the finances. Nixon again reports that Wanderers owe HMRC up to £1 million, with a further £1.5 million owed to Bolton Council.

The sooner we have new owners, the better.
