Rumour Mill-Nicky Hunt

Bolton recently recalled right back Nicky Hunt from a loan spell at Birmingham City to cover for injuries but they are understood to be willing to listen to offers for the player in the January windoe.

The Sunday papers have been keen to link the player with Burnley and it is understood Owen Coyle may have been forced to look at other defensive options after failing to sign Premier League full-back, Tony McMahon of Middlesbrough.

The Greater Manchester-born 25 year old has been a Bolton supporter since his schooldays.

His dreams were met when he signed for the club he adores in 2000 before making his debut in the First Division match against Sheffield United on the final day of the 2000-01 season after coming on as a substitute in place of Colin Hendry. This was the season that Bolton were promoted to the Premier League.

He didn't really breakthrough into the first team though until the 2003-04 season when he became a key part of the defence and a first-team regular for Bolton.

In August 2007, Hunt signed a new four year contract keeping him at the club until the end of the 2010-11 season.

In November 2008, Hunt signed for Birmingham City on an emergency loan basis, initially for one month and this was later extended for a further month.

The Sunday People apparantly also states that we have also failed in our attempt to sign Bradley Orr as well as Tony McMahon. Both too much money

I cant see this one coming off to be honest - has been an established premiership player for a few years and would expect his wages will be out of our budget - especially if it is restricted more than we thought!

Actual wording in People (Online):Burnley boss Owen Coyle wants Bolton right-back Nicky Hunt for his promotion push. Coyle has been priced out of moves for Bristol City's Bradley Orr and Tony McMahon of Middlesbrough, but he may have a chance with Hunt. The defender is back at Bolton after a loan spell at Birmingham.
