Bolton jump to front of Dindane queue

18 May 2010 10:37
olton have reportedly moved ahead of Wolves, Blackburn and Panathaniakos in the race to sign Lens forward Aruna Dindane this summer.

Dindane is in demand following his successful loan spell at Portsmouth last season but Blackburn have long been favourites to sign the 28-year-old after coming close to doing so in January.

However, Bolton are now widely reported to have matched Lens' £2.5million asking price for Dindane and the player is understood to have already held talks at the Reebok Stadium.

The Whites are willing to pay Dindane more than the other interested clubs, it is claimed, and a deal could even be completed this week ahead with Owen Coyle keen to get things done before Dindane joins up with the Ivory Coast World Cup squad.

Coyle has also been linked with loan moves for Real Madrid youngsters Marcos Alonso and Rodrigo Moreno, while a deal is said to be edging closer to secure Ivan Klasnic on loan for a second season.
