According to HITC Sport, Bolton Wanderers have been linked with Bury defender, Adam Thompson.

HITC state:

“HITC Sport understands a host of clubs are eyeing a summer move for Bury defender Adam Thompson. A number of Championship and League One clubs are lining up moves for Bury defender Adam Thompson this summer, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club. The centre-back has been instrumental in Bury’s push for promotion back to League One with a number of commanding performances for the Shakers. The 26-year-old will be entering the final year of his contract at Gigg Lane this summer and his suitors are actively monitoring his situation at Bury. The likes of Championship duo Bolton and Rotherhamas well as League One hopefuls Peterborough and Charlton have been making regular checks on the stopper this season.”

Capped at international level for Northern Ireland, the former Watford academy player could be a shrewd signing for Bolton to consider, whether they’re in the Championship or League One next season.

With Marc Wilson & Jack Hobbs prone to injury, signing a younger defender with more than 200 games in the Football League could well be a smart decision.
