Businessman Adam Kamani has taken to Twitter to deny that he and his brother Umar are in the running to buy Bolton Wanderers, and are instead enquiring about the hotel at the ground.
The Trotters are currently in the hands of administrators and are in search of search on new owners following former chairman Ken Anderson’s departure from the club earlier this year.
Having started the season with a 12 point deduction, Bolton signed two new players just hours before their opening fixture of the season on Saturday against Wycombe Wanderers, a game in which they had to field several academy graduates.
Referring to the rumours circulating about possible interest in taking over the Trotters, Kamani said: “We aren’t interested in buying the football club, however we did ask the administrators about the hotel situation which we haven’t heard back from yet – wish you all the success in the future and hope you get this situation sorted!
“Good luck guys.”

The Bolton Whites hotel which is situated next to the University of Bolton Stadium is also up for sale and has attracted a number of suitors in recent weeks.
With Kamani confirming that he is not interested in buying Bolton, it is now up to the administrators to push through a deal with the Football Ventures group who were expected to complete a takeover before the start of the season.
Although the Trotters were allowed to play their first game of the year after it was initially under threat of suspension, it is glaringly obvious that for everyone associated with the football club, a positive change has to occur quickly.
Whereas there are still several weeks left before the transfer window closes in League One, Phil Parkinson’s side may face the real prospect of yet another relegation if they are unable to bring in players who are capable of competing at this level.
