Former Rochdale and Barnsley boss Keith Hill is amongst the names linked with the vacant Bolton Wanderers managerial job according to Football Insider.

Sky Bet League One side Bolton are currently looking for another manager following Phil Parkinson’s resignation from the position earlier this week.

There have been many names linked with the job but Keith Hill is thought to be one of the frontrunners for the job at beleaguered Bolton.

Bolton have been in administration since May and they were forced to postpone Tuesday’s League One clash with Doncaster Rovers due to their concerns over the fitness and welfare of their youth players who have been consistently fielded in games this season.

Hill left Rochdale earlier this year and is thought to be keen to get back into management sooner rather than later and may be willing to take over the League One strugglers.

The 50-year-old boasts a wealth of experience having managed over 600 games in his career to date and he has helped develop the likes of John Stones, Craig Dawson and Glenn Murray during his time in charge of Rochdale and Barnsley.

He has performed well in his previous jobs with limited finances and with Bolton currently facing this predicament he may be the ideal candidate for the job.

He achieved two promotions during his time at Rochdale leading them to promotion to League One in 2014 and then keeping them up in the third tier of English football on both occasions being unable to spend too much in way of transfer fees.

Bolton are currently struggling as a club and it would take an almighty character to take on such a job but having been successful previously at a similar level, Hill may be their best option going forward.
