According to a report from TEAMtalk, League One side Bolton Wanderers are leading the chase for free agent midfielder Graham Dorrans, who has been linked with a number of League One teams after his release from Scottish Premiership side Rangers.

Along with that factor, it is claimed that the former West Brom and Norwich City midfielder is intrigued by the opportunity to help rebuild Bolton after their chaotic summer.

After spending the early stages of his career in his home country of Scotland with the likes of Livingston and Partick Thistle (loan), the midfielder joined West Brom in 2008.
