Championship and League One interest building in Bolton Wanderers striker

Published

on

According to HITC Sport, a host of clubs are willing to offer Adam Le Fondre a route out of Bolton Wanderers this month, with interest in the striker building across the Football League.

Le Fondre is in his second spell at the Macron Stadium, having rejoined Bolton initially on-loan last January, before making that move permanent during the summer transfer window.

Last year, Le Fondre was a key part of Bolton’s promotion winning squad in Sky Bet League One, with the 31-year-old featuring on 19 occasions in the league and chipping in with six goals for Phil Parkinson’s side.

However, after taking the striker on a permanent deal during the summer, Parkinson has been unable to offer Le Fondre regular football, with the former Reading and Wolves forward featuring from the start on just three occasions this season.

Le Fondre has scored just one goal on Bolton’s Championship return, a strike that came on the opening day of the season in a 3-2 defeat to Leeds United at the Macron Stadium.

Parkinson is reportedly understanding of Le Fondre’s frustration, and is willing to sanction a loan deal for the second-half of the season, with clubs from both the Championship and League One looking to swoop.

Bolton currently sit 20th in the Championship table, with Parkinson’s side a single point above the relegation zone after 28 fixtures.

The Verdict  

Le Fondre has found himself behind a number of others at the Macron Stadium this season, with the likes of Gary Madine clearly Parkinson’s first choice.

However, it is perhaps a surprise to hear that Parkinson is willing to let the 31-year-old leave, with Bolton facing a relegation battle over the coming months.

Le Fondre has a reputation of scoring important goals, and he could still be of use to Bolton during the second-half of the season.
