‘This’d be a class signing’ – Bolton make move to try and seal agreement: The verdict



Bolton Wanderers have enquired over the potential signing of Burton Albion striker Liam Boyce on a long loan.

According to Sky Sports, Phil Parkinson’s side have made an enquiry for the 27-year-old, for a loan deal, with a view to a permanent move in January.

Boyce, who has bagged himself four goals in seven games this season, including the winner against Championship side Aston Villa in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup tie, has two years left on his current contract at the Pirelli Stadium.

It is understood that Nigel Clough will resist and reject any approach for Boyce, with Burton Albion not looking to offload the Northern Ireland international.

Bolton Wanderers have started the season strongly, picking up three wins and a draw from their opening five Championship fixtures, but are looking to secure the signing of Boyce before the closure of the loan transfer window on Friday.

We discuss if the signing of Burton Albion’s Liam Boyce would be a good move for Phil Parkinson’s side.

Sam Rourke

This’d be a class signing.

I rate Liam Boyce very highly and he is a natural goal scorer.

Not necessarily blessed with pace, Boyce’s technical ability and finishing prowess make him a top player in the second tier in England.

He’d be a good option to have up-front for the Trotters.

George Dagless

Boyce has started well so it could be worth a look.

It’s a risk but Bolton have shown that they can make these sort of moves work.

You’d not be surprised if similar happened here.

Gary Hutchinson

He would be, but if Burton lose him they could really struggle.

He’s started life well in League One and there’s little doubt he’s a valuable asset for the Brewers, but I’m sure he’s better than that level.

Bolton have surprised people this season and if they recruit well they could be comfortable in mid table by the end of the season.
