Bolton Wanderers youngster Ronan Darcy is said to be attracting interest from Premier League side Leicester City and Scottish Premiership side Rangers, having impressed upon his emergence into the Bolton first-team.

Bolton Wanderers’ young side may have struggled in the early stages of the League One season, sitting bottom of the table with no wins after being hit with a 12 point deduction. However, some of the club’s youngsters have caught the eye since their involvement in the first-team, with Ronan Darcy said to be one of them.

A report from The Sun has said that Premier League side Leicester City are keeping tabs on Darcy as they look to bring in some new promising talents, while Football Insider has said that Scottish Premiership side Rangers are also taking a close look at the youngster.

The 18-year-old forward has made seven appearances so far this season, scoring once in the EFL Cup in a 5-2 defeat against fellow League One side Rochdale. However, since the arrival of Keith Hill as manager and the influx of senior players, Darcy’s senior game time has become more limited, making just one substitute appearance in League One since Hill’s appointment.
