Sebastien Le Toux will have a week to impress the Bolton Wanderer's coaching staff, according to manager Owen Coyle. The Scot confirmed reports out of the United States that Le Toux was on his way to Bolton on a trial ahead of a possible transfer.
"We have received good reports about Sebastian, so we thought we would give him an opportunity to come into the group," said Coyle.
Sky Sports reports that Coyle denied there being a deal in place to acquire the 28-year-old. However, the manager did say that he was open to seeing what the Frenchman could do while at Reebok Stadium.
"He will train with us for a week," Coyle said, "and we will see where we are after that."
The Frenchman would be able to move to England without the need for a work permit process, something that has hindered Tim Ream's move to Bolton, due to having an European Union passport.
Ream's proposed move to the Wanderers is priced at around 2.6 million pounds, making the speculation surround Le Toux's possible transfer point towards a number like that one. The additions of Ream and Le Toux would give Bolton three former MLS players, with American international Stuart Holden already on the club's roster.
For the time being, Le Toux joins fellow Philadelphia Union player Michael Farfan in England. Farfan is currently training with Sunderland until January 25. Previously, Amobi Okugo, Freddy Adu, Zach Pfeffer and Zac MacMath have trained in Europe this offseason.
