Matheson, John and more: What the summer could hold for Bolton Wanderers’ loaned out players

Bolton Wanderers are targeting a return to the Championship and could be looking to revamp their squad this summer.

Bolton Wanderers currently sit in 2nd place in the table, six points behind current League One leaders Portsmouth. However, they are just one point above 3rd placed Derby County and so will need to maintain momentum.

With their main goal being promotion to the second tier, the hierarchy could be forgiven for looking ahead to the up and coming summer transfer window. There will likely be incomings and outgoings, whilst they will also be monitoring those currently out on loan.

Here we take a look at three players out on loan from Bolton Wanderers and what the summer may hold for the trio.

Luke Matheson

Having broken through at Rochdale at aged 15, many thought Matheson would kick on in his career. Despite only being 21 years old, since leaving Rochdale he has played just 29 league games at seven different clubs combined.

He joined Bohemians in the Irish top tier in February, but he has not yet made an appearance for his current loan side. He will return to Bolton Wanderers in the summer but doesn’t look to be part of the first-team plans. With his deal expiring in 2025, he could be sold or loaned out again soon.

Declan John

The 28-year-old left-back has played close to 100 games for Bolton Wanderers but was loaned out to Salford City for the current campaign. Since making the switch he has been a regular fixture for the League Two side.

His contract at the Toughsheet Community Stadium is up in the summer and so a big decision will need to be made on whether to offer him a new deal or to allow him to leave for free.

Nelson Khumbeni

The young defensive midfielder has played twice for Bolton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy, but enjoyed his first taste of EFL action when he joined Morecambe on loan in January.

He looks to have cemented himself in the first-team fold at his current side and will be hoping to make an impact in helping them get into the League Two top six. With playing time at his parent club unlikely, another loan looks to be the on the cards again.
