Laws is understood to be close to signing Newcastle keeper, Fraser Forster on a season long loan and hopes to have him on board before the squad fly out to Singapore this Saturday. It looks like progress could be made today.
'I said on Saturday that we hoped to have further progress and I have done,' Laws told the media
'We have been in contact again and I am meeting the player on Wednesday. Hopefully we can get everything signed, sealed and delivered for our tour on Saturday.
'Fingers crossed, the talks and everything else will go well. Barring any disasters we are feeling pretty confident.'
Meanwhile another loan possibility could be young Belgian Manchester United defender, Ritchie de Laet who was linked with the Clarets over the weekend in Sunday's Daily Star along with new Premier League club,Blackpool. De Laet signed for Stoke City for an initial £100,000 fee in August 2007, from Belgian club Royal Antwerp, penning a three-year deal. In January 2009, De Laet was signed by Premier League champions Manchester United on a three-year contract. The 21 year old has made just three appearances for United since that time but it is understood Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to loan out the Belgian International
Laws though recently made a statement that he wuuld not be looking to sign any defenders although that could change if both Tyrone Mears and Andre Bikey leave Turr Moor.
Tyrone Mears was an alleged Owen Coyle target was but this looks to have been hogwash.
'There has been no offer for Tyrone and there won't be one,' Coyle told the Bolton Evening News.
Both West ham and Wigan have also been linked this week with a move for Andre Bikey
Chris Eagles continues to be in the limelight with rumours now that Rangers could land him for as little as £1million. It is understood the Gers could use the proceeds from the sale of Kevin Thomson to Middlesbrough to fund the deal. This would be the second Old Firm club to be linked with Eagles following specualtion recently that Celtic may also be interested. Eagles seems in demand all of a sudden with Blackpool looking to sign him on loan and Now Bolton inevitablly being linked with the winger.
The Already Gone!
Former Clarets captain, Steven Caldwell has been spotted training with his former mentor, Owen Coyle at Bolton but he is understood to be just passing through and keeping fit until someone comes in for him.
Meanwhile Stephen Jordan recently linked with a move to Palace could be a target by the manager that brought him to Turf Moor.Portsmouth's new manager Steve Cotterill is weighing up a move for the defender who is now a free agent and will likely appeal to cash-strapped Pompey. It is understood Portsmouth have taken Jordan on their tour of North America.
