Bolton Wanderers look set to delve into the transfer market to make some emergency signings. In an interview on Skysports.com Gary Megson revealed that Bolton purchases are not over especially in light of recent injuries.
Recent signing, striker Johan Elmander who cost them around Ã‚Â£11million is set to miss up to six weeks of action as the Swedish international has torn his hamstring.
To add to BoltonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s misery, left-winger Matt Taylor is also out of action for the foreseeable future with a broken toe.
These injuries coupled with the sale of El-Hadji Diouf to Sunderland leave Gary MegsonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s team quite short of options and so activity in the market seems inevitable.
Elmander started the season well scoring on his league debut in the win over Stoke City but limped out of last weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s defeat to Newcastle.
Megson told Sky Sports News: “Johan’s torn his hamstring and Matt has broke his toe and they will be out for a while. It’s disappointing for Johan, and from our own point of view it’s a big blow, because he’s set off remarkably well. But it happens and we get on and deal with it.”
He continued, “We are still trying to bring players in and that work will go right up to the wire as we try and improve the squad.”
