Bolton Wanderers set to offer deals to trio


Emile Heskey, Stephen Dobbie and Lawrie Wilson all set to sign at the Macron 

Bolton Wanderers are close to agreeing a new contract with Emile Heskey, as well as signing free-agents Stephen Dobbie and Lawrie Wilson, according to BBC Radio Manchester. 

Veteran forward Emile Heskey is to be offered new terms at the Trotters, having spent six-months at the club last season.

The Leicester-native, aged 37, made 16 appearances for Bolton, scoring the one goal against Blackburn Rovers on Boxing day, and will provide manager Neil Lennon with extra depth to his attacking options, as the Championship kick-off draws closer.


Meanwhile, Bolton are to offer contracts to two of their pre-season trialists, with Stephen Dobbie and Lawrie Wilson both to pen deals.

32-year-old Dobbie has featured for the Trotters in their friendly fixtures, having linked up with the squad on a recent tour of Austria.

The Scot was released by Crystal Palace this summer, after spending the 2014/15 term on loan with League One side Fleetwood Town – where he scored four times in 29 appearances during his temporary stint with the Cod Army.

Dobbie has a wealth of experience in the second-tier, winning promotion three times through the play-offs, during his career.

Lawrie Wilson, who was let go by Charlton Athletic, after three-years at the Valley, is another new recruit that the Lancashire outfit have been keen to add to their ranks.

All three players will join goalkeeper Ben Amos, Gary Madine, Derik Osede, Jordan Lussey and Jon Ceberio, in committing their futures to Bolton.
