As you will no doubt have heard, Bolton Wanderers are close to a takeover deal.  In a statement released on the club’s website on Sunday, it was confirmed that a deal has been reached, in principle, for a UK-based consortium to buy the club from its current owner, Ken Anderson.

The BBC have reported that a consortium, led by Cheshire businessman Parminder Basran, is close to a deal that, according to the Sun, could be concluded in the next week.

But what does this all mean for Wanderers’ season?

Well not a lot in reality. As both transfer windows have come and gone, Bolton won’t have the chance to sign any new players, unless they’re free agents.

However, a new set of owners, with some money behind them, should help stabilise the club which has been subject to more than its fair share of financial insecurity of late.

That should give a huge boost of confidence to players, staff and fans alike.

As is often the case in sport, confidence plays a huge part in an athlete or player’s performance. Therefore, you’d like to think that Bolton’s players will have a spring in their step against Swansea this weekend.

The fresh approach a new set of owners brings could give Bolton the positive momentum needed to beat the drop.

One thing for certain however, it’ll be a huge relief for all involved in Bolton Wanderers to know that the financial security and future of the club are guaranteed.

What do you make of the probable takeover?
