It has emerged from an exclusive report by The Bolton News that Bolton Wanderers are set to appoint Bradford City’s current manager Phil Parkinson as their new manager.
It was previously reported that Ken Anderson, Bolton’s Chairman, had narrowed the search down to former Sheffield United manager Nigel Adkins and former Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill as the two candidates battled for the Bolton job.
However, it is set to be a shock appointment as Bradford City’s Phil Parkinson is close to leaving the West Yorkshire side to join Bolton Wanderers.
Reports had previously suggested that Bradford City’s new owners were looking to bring in their own manager with Uwe Rosler being heavily linked with the job and it is now looking much more likely.
Although Bolton Wanderers’ chairman Ken Anderson had publicly stated that Bolton would not pay another club compensation because of Bolton’s financial situation, Bolton and Bradford City have agreed a deal.
