Wanderers are lining-up a move for Manchester City wonder-kid Bersant Celina, The Bolton News understands.

The highly-rated 20-year-old midfielder spent most of last season on loan with FC Twente in Holland but will be sent out to the Championship next season, with Phil Parkinson first in the queue.

Celina has already made his bow in the Premier League, making a late cameo against Leicester City in February last year, and also played three times for the City first team in the FA Cup.

He impressed on loan in Eredivise last term, scoring five goals in 27 appearances, but a request to take him back to the continent has been turned down.

The Kosovan youngster can play on either wing or as a number 10, and has gained six caps for his country since they were officially recognised by FIFA. Celina had previously played for Norway’s Under-21s but turned down a senior call-up.

News of Wanderers’ interest was first flagged up on Celina’s Instagram account, where he posted a picture of the Macron Stadium.

It is understood talks have since taken placed between the club and the player’s representatives, with a view to a season-long loan.

Wanderers made a successful switch to 3-5-2 in February after losing Sammy Ameobi and Zach Clough, with new signing Felipe Morais employed in a wing-back role during the League One promotion run-in.

The former Bradford City star has spoken to the Whites about a new contract, with hopes high a deal will be struck later this month.

But Parkinson also wants the option of returning to 4-2-3-1 and is on the lookout for at least two attacking players who could fit the bill.

Meanwhile, The Bolton News understands Wanderers will not be looking into a loan deal for Liverpool defender Lloyd Jones.

Reports at the weekend suggested Phil Parkinson was lining-up a move for the 21-year-old centre-back, who spent last season at Swindon, but the rumour has been played down at the Macron.

This is the sort of signing that would excite me. A kid who actually has a bit of top flight experience, albeit in Holland.

I'm glad Lloyd won't be joining us, people called Lloyd don't make it as footballers.
