Bolton Wanderers casting eyes over player before making transfer call



Bolton have reached terms on another agreement this month but only on a short-term basis with David Odumosu playing for the club on trial, as reported by Independent IE.

The League One side are on the hunt for yet another promotion this season and a good transfer window from boss Ian Evatt at the club could drastically help their chances.

The latest deal to be done is this one for Odumosu, although it is currently not one that will see the player playing for them on a long-term basis right now.

The goalkeeper has only agreed to link-up with the club for three days, so that Bolton can have a thorough look at the player and see if he is worth snapping up.

If they like what they see of the shot-stopper, then Ian Evatt could certainly test the waters with a proper bid. The 20-year-old currently plays in Ireland for Drogheda United and a deal could be done for relatively cheap if Wanderers do decide to keep him on with them.

The trial period for Odumosu begins today and will see him ply his trade for the club over the next 72 hours to potentially try and earn himself a move to England. If Bolton decide not to do anything, then he will shortly return to his parent club and will begin the new Irish season with Drogheda United.

It’s one to keep an eye on for sure, as if Ian Evatt likes what he sees, then he could start dipping his hand into his pocket for the shot-stopper.

The Verdict

David Odumosu has no EFL experience yet but has plenty of action in the first tier of Irish football and is looking bright for his current club.

There are a few teams sniffing around the player and that wouldn’t come without the youngster having some talent. The 20-year-old has certainly looked solid in Ireland and has already racked up plenty of appearances, so there could be a chance for him to test himself in England on the horizon.

If Bolton do indeed like what they see of the player, then they could be the first to test the waters with a bid. The goalkeeper is young and has the potential to develop into a solid player in England – and if they can do a deal on the cheap, then it may be worth taking a gamble and doing it while they can.

He’s proven to be solid inbetween the sticks despite his age and if he can prove just how talented he is during his trial with Wanderers, then the interest in his services could really start to pick up this transfer window.
