Bolton Wanderers are in talks with MK Dons’ Chuks Aneke over a potential loan move according to a report from the Milton Keynes Citizen.
The 25-year-old midfielder, who was capped once by the England U19s, came through the Arsenal academy but he never made a league appearance for the Gunners. Instead he went on loan to the likes of Stevenage, Preston North End and Crewe Alexandra before being released. Aneke then made the unexpected move to Belgium to play for Zulte Wagarem but returned to England to sign for MK Dons in 2016.
While MK Dons had a miserable year last season as they were relegated from Sky Bet League One, Aneke was one of their few bright points. He was able to score ten goals in last year’s campaign and their drop down to Sky Bet League Two was definitely not because of him. But when you get relegated, you risk losing top quality players like Aneke and that looks like happening.
New head coach Paul Tisdale has admitted before that he’s only been able to work Aneke on two occasions during the summer and he has now said he is in talks with another team. This report from local media says that team is Bolton who are looking to sign him on a loan with a view for a permanent deal.
Tisdale said: “It’s still not confirmed but we are in talks with another club and until that goes through, it is what it is – it’s not confirmed. We have a lot of things to focus on but it will probably manifest itself in the next couple of days whether he’s going or not.”
