The USA international has been out of action since April 2013 through injury.
Bolton have struggled to put together a cohesive assault on promotion since they were relegated from the Premier League in 2012 despite, on paper, having a squad with the tools to do so.
One of the talented members of that squad was American international Stuart Holden.
Unfortunately the creative midfielder has had a miserable time with injuries in recent years. He has not played since April 2013, which was on loan at Sheffield Wednesday, and has not played a single game in the 2014-15 or 2015-16 seasons.
This weekend he made light of his current situation on Twitter.
He was at Bolton's Macron Stadium over the weekend giving away a prize to a lucky Trotters fan when he was told by one fan to go in and sign a contract with the club. To which he responded, the doors were locked:
All jokes aside Holden is still working hard on a potential comeback and right now, a full fit Holden is just what Bolton would need.
