Despite what a quote attributed to Owen Coyle in Sporting Life says, Sebastien Le Toux is still a transfer target for Bolton Wanderers, if the money is available.

Alan Nixon, of The People and Mirror Football, is reporting that Bolton is focusing mostly upon wingers, but that Le Toux is still on the team's mind. As it stands, Coyle is looking to add Ryo Miyachi on loan from Arsenal, buy Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace), buy or loan Juan Iturbe (FC Porto), according to Nixon.

Le Toux is next on the list if funds still exist after Bolton bring in players to help they avoid relegation this season. The Frenchman, per Nixon, had a successful trial with Bolton, a direct contradiction of what Sporting Life had quoted Coyle as saying.

The 28-year-old striker returned to Philadelphia, after spending a little less than a week with the Wanderers, with speculation surrounding him about a potential move to Bolton. The Union appear to have prepared for life after Le Toux by reportedly signing Colombian striker Lionard Pajoy.
