Bolton take MLS striker Sebastian Le Toux on trial
Thursday 19 January 2012
Bolton manager Owen Coyle has confirmed striker Sebastian Le Toux has joined the club for a week's training.
Le Toux has made a big impact in Major League Soccer with the Philadelphia Union and, following the success of Stuart Holden and the impending arrival of United States defender Tim Ream, Coyle wants to have a look at the 28-year-old before deciding whether to make a move.
"We have received good reports about Sebastian, so we thought we would give him an opportunity to come into the group," confirmed Coyle.
"He will train with us for a week and we will see where we are after that."
Coyle confirmed he was edging closer to signing Ream, who would be a direct replacement for Gary Cahill, although the transfer from the New York Red Bulls is not concluded just yet.
"It is close but we need everything in place before we can announce it," said the Scot.
