Bolton Wanderers reportedly want to sign Sheffield Wednesday’s Liam Palmer in the summer transfer window.

Bolton Wanderers are interested in signing Liam Palmer from Sheffield Wednesday in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Bolton want to sign Palmer on a season-long loan deal from Championship rivals Wednesday this summer.

Trotters boss Phil Parkinson is keen but may have to come up with cash to clinch the deal,” adds the report in The Sun.

Palmer has been on the books of Wednesday his entire professional club career so far and has extensive experience of playing in the Championship.

The 25-year-old former Scotland Under-21 international is a versatile player who can operate as a central midfielder or as a right-back.

The Wednesday man started 15 games in the Championship last season and made six further appearances as a substitute.

Bolton will feature in the Championship next season after winning automatic promotion from League One at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Palmer is a good player, and he would be a smart signing for the Trotters, who will be aiming to stave off relegation from the second tier of English football next season.
