Bolton are considering signing centre-back Jack Hobbs who is a free agent after leaving Nottingham Forest in the summer, according to Sun Journalist Alan Nixon.
The 29-year old had spent five years at the City Ground but has suffered with injuries, particularly in the final few years.
The former Leicester man was restricted to just nine league appearances two seasons ago and featured just once in the second-tier last season.
Therefore, Aitor Karanka made the decision to release the player this summer, although he did praise his professionalism and work on the training ground as he got back to fitness in the final month or so of the campaign.
And, according to journalist Alan Nixon, Bolton are interested in the player who would be available to join immediately.
Phil Parkinson has had a frustrating window so far as he looks to add to his squad after dramatically securing survival on the final day last season.
The Trotters are also short in defence, with centre-back Reece Burke having returned to West Ham which explains the Hobbs link.
Bolton are a side that have to look and search for bargains and Hobbs as a free agent would be an ideal signing.
The obvious issue is his fitness and the Championship side will have to seriously check the player and may also offer a short-term deal to the player.
However, in terms of his ability, there’s no doubt Hobbs can still play, he’s a very solid performer at this level and if fit would be a good addition to a Bolton squad that needs new faces.
