Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson is understood to be eyeing three new signings in the January transfer window to help his club avoid an immediate relegation back to Sky Bet League One according to reports by The Bolton News.
After truly dismal start to life back in the Sky Bet Championship, The Trotters’ fortunes have improved in recent weeks and a run which has seen Wanderers lose just twice in 10 matches has boosted their chances of survival.
The Lancashire club’s success in the second half of the season could ultimately depend upon how well manager Parkinson wheels and deals in next month’s transfer window and it has been revealed that the Wanderers boss would like to bring three new faces to The Macron Stadium.
Both Bolton Wanderers’ transfer and wage budgets remain extremely tight and manager Parkinson will have to pull some strings to get the best value for players in the upcoming window. The club have been linked with loan moves for Nottingham Forest’s Zach Clough and Manchester United youngster Scott McTominay in recent days and any new arrivals could well be on either short term deals or loan arrangements.
A positive statement from Wanderers has recently indicated that the club will not sell any of their top stars next month and retaining their most in-form players could be just as important as adding new recruits to the squad.
