Bolton Wanderers are in pole position to complete the loan signing of Everton midfielder Joe Williams, according to Football Insider.
They say that Birmingham City, Bristol City and Hull City have all expressed an interest in taking the 21-year-old on loan this summer, but it looks like Phil Parkinson has beaten them.
He enjoyed a successful loan spell at Barnsley last season and impressed the Oakwell faithful during the 34 games he played there.
Williams bossed the midfield from a defensive position and the Tykes were keen to make the move permanent this summer, but Everton rejected their offer.
This would be Phil Parkinson’s 17th signing of the summer,but just the fourth he will have made on loan following Remi Mathews and Yanic Wildschut from Norwich City and Jonathan Grounds from Birmingham City.
This looks to be a really, really good signing for Bolton.
Although Barnsley did end up going down last campaign, there is no doubt that Williams proved himself as more than capable of performing at this level.
They were heavily tipped to go down at the start of the season, but Parkinson certainly put the hard work in over the summer to ensure that does not happen.
Williams may just be the best signing they have made.
