Championship side Bolton Wanderers would be interested in a move for Manchester City striker Isaac Buckley-Ricketts if he became available, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The 19 year-old forward is currently on loan with Eredivisie side FC Twente but Manchester City are apparently considering whether to recall him as he has only featured 4 times since joining the Dutch club in the summer. Bolton boss Phil Parkinson would be interested in bringing him to the Macron Stadium for the second half of the season.

Buckley-Ricketts was born in Manchester and has represented England at U18, U19 and U20 level. He is rated highly at Manchester City, who would like him to gain some first-team experience, which he clearly is not getting at FC Twente. A move to Bolton, near Manchester, would suit all parties.

Bolton have endured a difficult start to life back in the Championship. They were relegated to League One in 2015/16 but made an immediate return to the second tier last season under Phil Parkinson. They are currently bottom of the table but are on a high after their first win of the campaign against Sheffield Wednesday at home last Saturday.

There is no doubt that the Trotters will be in a relegation dog fight for the remainder of this season. They will be busy in January adding fresh faces to their ranks as they look to stay in the division. Manchester City striker Isaac Buckley-Ricketts could be one who comes through the entrance door at the Macron Stadium.
