Bolton Wanderers have a number of first-team players out of contract this summer. Here are five-

Josh Vela- The 25-year-old has been at Bolton since the age of nine and has played just under 200 games for them. However, the academy graduate is out of contract in June and could move onto pastures new for the first time in his career.

Mark Beevers- Wheater’s centre-back partner is also out of contract and is unlikely to play for Bolton in League One next season. The former Sheffield  Wednesday and Millwall defender is expected to weigh up his options over the coming months.

Craig Noone- The ex-Cardiff City winger will have to search for a new club unless Bolton give him a new deal. He has played 38 games in all competitions for Phil Parkinson’s side this season, scoring once and gaining two assists.

Jack Hobbs- He joined the Trotters last summer on a free transfer and only signed a one-year deal. The 30-year-old has played for the likes of Lincoln City, Liverpool, Leicester City, Hull City and Nottingham Forest in the past and may have to find a new club this summer.
