Bolton manager Owen Coyle has reiterated his desire to bring striker Daniel Sturridge back to the Reebok Stadium on loan next season.
The 21-year-old Chelsea player proved an outstanding success during a four-month stint with the Trotters last term, scoring eight goals in 12 Barclays Premier League appearances. With Sturridge now facing a tough battle for his place back at Stamford Bridge, Coyle hopes the Londoners will agree to loan him out again.
Coyle told the club's website, www.bwfc.co.uk: "I feel with Daniel that another period with Bolton Wanderers would certainly take him on to the next level of his career, and then be a starter for Chelsea."
He added: "Just now he is under Drogba, Torres, Malouda, Anelka, Kalou - as outstanding a player as Daniel is.
"Time will tell but we give them the platform, the opportunity and the belief to play in the best league in the world."
