Bolton Wanderers are set to sign winger Daniel Kelly from Bohemians, according to the Irish Sun.
The 22-year-old played for the Trotters’ Under-23’s last night in a fixture against Hull City and now looks set to sign a contract at the University of Bolton Stadium.
Kelly has become a man in-demand after impressing in the League of Ireland Premier Division last season for Bohemians. He has been linked with League One side Doncaster Rovers as well as the likes of Cork City, Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers but Bolton are going to win the race for him.
The Irishman made the switch from Bray Wanderers to Bohemian in July and scored seven goals for them in 33 appearances. He had previously played for St Patrick’s CYFC.
It is worrying times for Bolton Wanderers at the moment and they are currently 23rd in the Championship. The Trotters are one point off safety but are in a dire run of form and have not won for 17 matches in all competitions.
Their manager, Phil Parkinson, is now being linked with a switch to fellow second tier strugglers Reading, as reported by The72 earlier today.
The likely signing of Daniel Kelly will be some positive news for Bolton fans as he is one for them to keep an eye on in the future. He may even offer them another option going forward in the rest of this campaign. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to life in the Championship.
