Luton Town have been linked with former Bolton Wanderers defender Marc Wilson.

According to TEAMtalk, Marc Wilson is set to join Luton Town following his release from Bolton Wanderers.

The report states Wilson has spoken to several Championship clubs this summer, but Luton appear to have won the race for his signature with the defender closing in on a permanent move to the Hatters.

Wilson has plenty of experience having featured for the likes of Sunderland, Portsmouth and Stoke City, making over 100 Premier League appearances for the latter.

The 31-year-old joined Bolton last summer on a one-year deal, but he endured a torrid time at the Macron Stadium as Wanderers suffered relegation to League One.

Bolton’s financial troubles has seen the club lose over ten senior players from last season, including the likes of Josh Vela, and Wilson ultimately departed the club after the Trotters failed to extend his expiring contract.

The 25-capped Republic of Ireland international is capable of playing both in defence and midfield, and his experience could be key for Luton in their bid to preserve their Championship status.

The Hatters kicked off their campaign with a 3-3 home draw to Middlesbrough. Graeme Jones’s side were fluid going forward, but they were wobbly at the back and Wilson has seemingly been identified to help rectify that.
