Bolton take look at youngster

Despite not quite making the grade at Wolves, Matheson is still young and has bags of potential. He would be a shrewd long-term addition for Bolton if they decide to hand him a deal.

The full-back has the potential to grow and develop down the line and would add more competition and depth to their squad ahead of the next campaign in League One as they eye promotion under Ian Evatt. The North West club made the play-offs last season but were beaten at the semi-finals stage by Barnsley.

Matheson started his career at Rochdale and rose up through the academy ranks at Spotland. He was a regular for the Dale at various youth levels before he made his senior debut in September 2018 in an EFL Trophy clash against Bury at the age of just 15.

He then made the headlines when he scored against Manchester United away at Old Trafford just 12 months later at the age of 16. Wolves swooped to land him shortly after but he didn’t make an appearance during his time at Molineux. Instead, he gained experience out on loan at Ipswich Town, Hamilton Academical and most recently Scunthorpe United.
