Bolton Wanderers, who currently sit rock-bottom of the Championship, look set to lose midfield duo Mark Davies and Zac Clough in the January transfer window.

Neil Lennon’s side are currently under a transfer embargo, they are £172.9 million in debt and have received a winding-up petition. Players and staff are also not being paid correctly.

Lennon told BBC Radio 5 live:

“There was a bid in yesterday for Zach Clough””Mark Davies looks like he’s going to Sheffield Wednesday.”

The ex-Celtic boss has been anticipating the loss of players, and if they do lose the two players, Bolton may not be able to recover due to the embargo that they have been placed under.

The club is currently for sale, and club advisor Trevor Birch is currently looking for potential buyers. Club owner Eddie Davies is not putting any money into the club at this time, the main reason why the club is in so much debt.

Wanderers sit four points adrift at the bottom of the Championship, and they avoided being the victims of an FA cup shock exit against National League team Eastleigh, thanks to a late Darren Pratley equaliser, meaning that Bolton have booked a replay against them.
