As Bolton edge ever closer to inevitable relegation, all of the club’s issues are dangerously piling on top of each other as takeover talks supposedly continue behind the scenes.
According to the Bolton News, the club’s financial uncertainty is starting to affect preparation for next season. Phil Parkinson and his coaching staff are reportedly unable to make plans for next campaign’s pre-season.
Parkinson and co are also facing an uncertain future. Their jobs could well come under threat if a new owner was to take charge.
Meanwhile, Wanderers’ wonder-kid, Luca Connell, is attracting more attention from Premier League clubs. His current youth contract is due to end in the summer. Everton and Wolves are reportedly the clubs taking an interest in the 17-year-old midfielder.
Connell will apparently sign a new contract at Wanderers but only if new owners can be found.
As one of the few rare glimpses of hope this season, keeping hold of Connell must be made a priority. The last thing Wanderers need is to lose another one of their talented youth players.
If Bolton intend to make an instant fight back in League One next season, Wanderers will need all of the talent they can get.
Therefore it’s imperative that every effort is made to conclude the takeover deal as quickly as possible to fend off Luca Connell’s Premier League suitors.
