According to the Daily Mirror, Bolton winger Chris Eagles is now a transfer target for Burnley and Middlesbrough after it was confirmed that his contract at Bolton would not be renewed.
The winger joined Bolton along with his then Burnley teammate, Tyrone Mears, in July 2011 for a joint £3million fee after Burnley suffered financial troubles following their relegation from the Premier League.
Chris Eagles had a very impressive season for Burnley when in the Premier League, gaining praise from critics all over the world. Now it seems that Burnley want to re-sign the midfielder for their return to the Premier League. Middlesbrough on the other hand have been scouting Eagles for some time now and they may now feel that they are favourites to sign him.
It is believed that a move to the Teeside club is what he wants. However, a move to the Premier League would be extremely difficult to turn down. Interest for the winger is high after Bolton announced that he along with five other senior squad members would be released.
During his three-year stay at Bolton, Eagles made 93 appearances for the club whilst scoring 17 goals.
