2 Bolton Wanderers transfer sagas to keep an eye on this week

Published

It’s been a busy start to the January window for Bolton Wanderers, with three new players joining Ian Evatt’s ranks and striker Eoin Doyle departing. 

Rochdale midfielder Aaron Morley is the latest player to arrive, following Fulham loanee Marlon Fossey and forward Dion Charles from Accrington Stanley.

There are still nearly three weeks to go until the window slams shut, however, and it would be no surprise to see the North West club continue to be active with the threat of relegation from League One present in 2021/22.

With that in mind, we’ve highlighted two Bolton transfer sagas to keep an eye on this week…

The pursuit of Gillingham skipper Kyle Dempsey

It appears Gillingham midfielder and captain Kyle Dempsey could be the next player through the door at the University of Bolton Stadium.

The Bolton News reported earlier this week that the club had made at least one offer for the Gills skipper.

Gillingham run the risk of losing Dempsey for nothing when his current deal in the summer and it seems their League One rivals are looking to take advantage of that.

The 26-year-old has proven his quality over the past few seasons, including scoring eight times and adding four assists last term.

We’ve seen Bolton wrap up their business fairly quickly this term, so it might be worth keeping an eye on the move for Dempsey this week.

Can you name which club Bolton Wanderers signed these 28 midfielders from?

The search for a new goalkeeper 

Bolton’s three signings so far have strengthened the defence, midfield and attack but it seems Evatt is keep to bolster his options in goal as well.

Speaking to the Bolton News, the Trotters boss revealed that they’re searching for a new goalkeeper in the winter window after Matt Gilks moved into a purely coaching role.

Cover and competition for Joel Dixon appears to be high on the club’s list of January priorities.

Evatt explained: “We always want competition and we feel like another goalkeeper would help us in terms of competition for places.”

If the window so far is anything to go by, it’s a situation that you feel could move fairly quickly once Bolton get a target in their sights.
