Owen Coyle hopes to take Ivan Klasnic back to Bolton after his Nantes contract expired, but he is not hopeful of loaning Jack Wilshere again.[LNB] Klasnic spent last season on loan at the Reebok Stadium and made a good impression on Coyle, who took charge in January.[LNB]The path has now been cleared for Klasnic to return to the club after his departure from Nantes was confirmed on Monday.[LNB]Coyle is planning talks with the 30-year-old, but says there is a long way to go before a deal can be agreed.[LNB]The Trotters manager conceded last week that Klasnic's wages could prove to be a stumbling block.[LNB]"He is a player that I always liked and a player we'd like to have, but there is more involved than that, such as finances, and we'll see what develops," Coyle told Sky Sports News.[LNB]"I think the world of him and he loves the football club, he's popular, but there's a little bit of water to flow under the bridge before that happens."[LNB]Asked if there had been further talks, Coyle replied: "There will be."[LNB]Klasnic, meanwhile, insists he is not under any pressure to find a new employer.[LNB]The 30-year-old is currently training in Germany and told French media: "I believed that for both me and Nantes it was the best solution (to cancel the contract). [LNB]"I could not see myself playing in Ligue 2, and Nantes didn't have the right resources.[LNB]"I know I will find a new club. I am under no pressure and I have two or three options."[LNB]Meanwhile Coyle has said he is even less optimistic about his chances of recruiting Wilshere for a second loan spell.[LNB]Wilshere linked up with Bolton for the second half of last term but Arsene Wenger has indicated he will keep the highly-rated midfielder at Arsenal this season.[LNB]Questioned on the possibility of another loan deal, Coyle said: "If you go by all the quotes attributed to everyone, probably less likely.[LNB]"I feel he is a far better player for his six months at Bolton and if he does become available then we'd love to have him.[LNB]"I understand why Arsene would want him around, but I think he is at the stage when he has to play to play to continue the progress he has made.[LNB]"Ultimately it is Arsene's decision and we are very respectful that Arsenal were very good to us last season in loaning Jack."
