Bolton Wanderers are still not offering contracts to free agents as their summer of discontent drags on, as reported by the Bolton News.
The Trotters suffered relegation at the end of last season and face a 12-point deduction going into the new campaign. Players have been leaving in their droves over the summer and just this weekend they lost 1-0 in a friendly against National League North side York City.
Despite the present turmoil, the club are still not in a position to offer deals to trialists looking for a deal. It’s reported they’re waiting on a takeover to be completed before they can make any positive moves in the transfer market.
With the big kick off less than three weeks away, it leaves them in a dire situation.
Supporters are apparently incredibly worried about what the future holds for the former Premier League side. They’re looking increasingly short on time to build a squad and may have to go into the new season with a very youthful side indeed.
With a 12-point deficit to catch up, the prospect of a successive relegation is very real indeed, something that surely drives a number of these messages on Twitter.

Good old Ken Anderson putting the hotel in admin separate to EDT doing the club, no doubt there's a reason that benefits him in doing that as well as causing the club more grief even tho he's supposed to be gone. Surely who ever buys club/hotel needs the other too for success
