A potential takeover of Bolton Wanderers could be about to fail because of a disagreement over new claims from HMRC, according to a report.

There has been speculation surrounding the future of several Bolton players already this month as the club look to cut the wage bill and get big earners out of the door.  Bolton are currently £189 million in debt and are facing a winding up order of £2.2 million.

Last month the club were put under transfer embargo due to being unable to submit a Financial Fair Play return for the 2014-15 season.

Now things look even worse for the club, with the news that a potential takeover could be about to go down the drain.  It is believed that a group are in talks with current owner Eddie Davies but things have hit a stumbling block.

The group are understood to be asking the current owners to be responsible for paying any future claims from HMRC whereas Davies will not agree to any deal where he has to pay for any new claims.  This has put the possible sale of the club under threat.
