Bolton Wanderers have enquired into the loan availability of Swansea’s Jay Fulton, according to the Burnden Aces.
Manager Phil Parkinson is keen to add to his options before the transfer window slams shut this evening, and a swoop for the young midfielder is certainly on the cards.
The 23-year-old began his career in Scotland with Falkirk, before earning a switch to Premier League Swansea City in 2014.
Fulton has made 24 first team appearances for the Swans, but is unlikely to play a significant role under Paul Clement this season, so a loan deal could be the best option for the player.
Fulton’s contract with the Welsh club is set to expire next summer, so a Championship loan spell is an excellent opportunity for the player to put himself in the shop window.
Actually born in Bolton, Fulton is the son of former Trotters midfielder Steve, and the move to his hometown club could play a significant role in any decision the player makes this afternoon.
The Verdict: Fulton is an impressive young player who, despite massive competition, has forced his way into the first team at the Liberty Stadium.
With opportunities set to be limited this year, Fulton may seek a loan move away this summer, and with his contract expiring next year, will see the opportunity as a chance to earn himself a new deal at Swansea or another club.
If Parkinson can pull this deal if he will have acquired a fantastic young player, and his midfield options will have been significantly boosted.
Is Fulton the type of player you should be targeting, Trotters fans?
