Bolton Wanderers are keeping close tabs on a number of players who are currently on trial with the club in recent weeks according to The Bolton News.
One of those to feature for Bolton’s under 23’s side was former Derby midfielder Timi Elsnik, and he’ll be keen to find a new club at the earliest of opportunities.
Elsnik was never a regular for the Rams, although he did make three appearances for the the Championship outfit in the EFL Cup, before being sent out on loan to Northampton Town last season.
Another player that Bolton are keeping a close eye on is Moussa Niakate, who was on the team-sheet for the 6-3 defeat to Ipswich Town recently.
The left-back has been without a club since his brief spell with Stoke City came to an end in the summer, and it remains to be seen as to whether he has made a good impression with the Trotters.
Amadou Sylla is also on Bolton’s radar, with the former Middlesbrough winger featuring in the defeat to the Tractor Boys earlier this term.
Sylla has represented France’s under 19’s earlier in his career, and he’ll be hoping to get his career back on track after being released from The Riverside in the summer.
It’s clear to see that Keith Hill is looking to add some much-needed depth to his squad this season, as they look to pull off an unlikely survival in League One.
Bolton are currently sat bottom of the table and are 19 points adrift of safety after starting this year’s league campaign on -12 points due to their well-publicised off-the-field problems.
Hill’s side are next in action on Saturday, when they take on Rochdale, in a game that they’ll feel as though they can come away with a positive result from to kick-start their season.
It’s good to see them looking to add further depth to the first team squad.
The Trotters have made some good singings recently, but they could certainly benefit from adding some much-needed quality to their side heading towards the busy festive period.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they signed all three players currently on trial with the club, as it’s important that they get numbers through the door more than anything at the moment.
