Bolton Wanderers are interested in a loan move for Watford defender Tommie Hoban, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.
The Trotters have been busy in recent weeks as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of another upcoming Championship season for them.
Their manager, Phil Parkinson, is keen to bring in some reinforcements into their defence and has now targeted a move for Watford centre-back Tommie Hoban.
The 24-year-old will become available for loan this summer and Watford look to get him some minutes under his belt. Hoban was ruled out for the whole of the last campaign with a anterior cruciate ligament injury so the Hornets want him to regain his fitness and get some first-team action.
Hoban was at Arsenal’s academy as a youngster but left them in 2009 and joined Watford. He rose through the youth ranks at Vicarage Road and made his debut for them in May 2011 in a Championship fixture against Preston North End.
He was loaned to non-league side Wealdstone in 2012 and played 7 games for them in his short stint there. Hoban has since played over 50 games for Watford but has never been a first-team regular for them. He spent the 2016/17 season on loan at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.
A loan move to Bolton Wanderers from Watford for Hoban would suit both parties and is a deal that is likely to get done. If kept fit, Hoban could slot nicely into the Trotters’ defence and be a key player for them in the Championship next season.
