You can tell we’re almost done with the season, we’ve had the first piece of transfer gossip of the summer.

According to Football Insider, Bolton are considering making a move for Joel “Jon” Nouble, the younger brother of former West Ham and current Colchester front man, Frank. The article states:

Bolton Wanderers are among a number of Football League clubs plotting to sign Aldershot forward Jon Nouble, Football Insider can reveal.

He is the brother of former West Ham and current Colchester United striker Frank Nouble.

A source told Football Insider Chesterfield failed in a move for Nouble on National League registration/transfer deadline last Thursday.

The 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer and Aldershot are expecting to lose him to a Football League club given his fine form.

The winger has scored five goals in 26 National League games this season for the Shots who sit in 11th with a remote chance of making the play-offs.

Nouble started his career with Dagenham & Redbridge in 2013 before dropping into non-league after making one appearance in League Two.

He played for 11 clubs before arriving at Aldershot in the summer.”


The 6”4 forward can play anywhere across the front three but has been utilised most recently on the right wing. In a rich vein of form, the former Chelsea and Millwall schoolboy is being tipped as one of the most exciting players in the National League and looks ready to make the step up into the Football League.
