Bolton's Dorian Dervite is reportedly attracting interest from Leeds, Fulham and QPR.

According to TEAMtalk, Leeds, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers are planning to raid Bolton Wanderers for defender Dorian Dervite.

Bolton are in real trouble right now, on and off the pitch. Neil Lennon's men sit bottom of the Championship table, having won just once in 20 games so far this season.

Off the pitch though, Wanderers are in a precarious position. As reported by BBC Sport, Bolton are over £170m in debt, and are facing a winding-up petition over unpaid taxes.

Players haven't been paid for November, and manager Lennon confirmed to BBC Sport that players can leave their contracts if they don't get paid in December either - and unsurprisingly, their Championship rivals are allegedly circling the Macron Stadium in search of a bargain.

TEAMtalk report that centre back Dorian Dervite is attracting interest from other Championship clubs, with Fulham, Leeds and Queens Park Rangers interested.

The French defender, 27, started his career with Lille before spells with Southend, Villarreal and Charlton Athletic, and is now a regular starter for Bolton.

Having played for Spurs and Charlton, heading back to London could be appealing to Dervite, with Fulham and QPR seemingly looking to offer him a return to the capital.

Meanwhile, Leeds have three centre backs in Sol Bamba, Giuseppe Bellusci and Liam Cooper, but manager Steve Evans may look for more depth in defence - and a cut-price raid on Bolton for Dervite could make some sense in January.
