Bolton manager Owen Coyle has reiterated his desire to bring striker Daniel Sturridge back on loan next season.

The 21-year-old Chelsea player proved an outstanding success during a four-month stint with the Trotters last season, scoring eight goals in 12 Premier League appearances. With Sturridge facing a tough battle for a place at Stamford Bridge, Coyle hopes Chelsea will agree to loan him out again.

Coyle said: "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. Just now he is under Drogba, Torres, Malouda, Anelka, Kalou – as outstanding a player as Daniel is."
