Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt has offered an update on Brandon Comley’s future to The Bolton News after the midfielder’s proposed move to Leyton Orient fell through on deadline day.
The East London side are said to have been very interested in bringing in the 25-year-old this summer, until a move failed to materialise as the clock ticked down on deadline day.
As a result Comley will now remain at the University of Bolton Stadium until January at least and will be looking to force his way back into Evatt’s plans for the time being as he looks to get his career back on track.
Speaking about the breakdown of his player’s expected departure, Evatt was quick to state the following on Comley’s situation with the club moving forwards:
“Brandon will be the first to admit that he needs regular first team football. He wants regular first team football, but it hasn’t happened in this window.
“So, for now, he has got to get his head down and work very hard in training to try and get in the team and in the squad.”
12 of these 25 Bolton Wanderers facts are fake – Can you identify them?
Comley hasn’t featured for the Trotters since December of last year and as a result he has fallen way down the midfield pecking order.
The midfielder originally moved to the club in July of last year from Colchester United and has only played a part in 14 games so far.
It is a great shame that Comley didn’t get the move he desired but he quite simply has to move on and focus on getting some much needed game time under his belt with Bolton from now on.
The move to join Wanderers hasn’t really worked out and it is clear that he would be rather be playing closer to his birth place in London.
If he manages to get some games under his belt between now and the winter transfer window, there is every chance that a move to Orient could come back on the agenda.
It’s clear that Evatt has sympathy for him and there is no doubt that the Bolton boss will have his best interests at heart.
