WITH transfer deadline day approaching, I am going to look back at Wanderers ' previous few summer deadline day dealings, writes Sean Taylor of Leigh.

Firstly I am going to go back to the deadline day in 209-10, when Gary Megson was in charge. We signed Croatian striker Ivan Klasnic on a season long loan from French side Nantes and he scored the winner in a 3-2 win against Everton. Frequent goals led to him becoming a fan’s favourite.

His loan move was made permanent by Owen Coyle and two more goal scoring seasons followed until Wanderer’s relegation this summer saw Klasnic being released.

Owen Coyle’s first summer saw him do most of his business early with the signings of Martin Petrov, Marcos Alonso and Robbie Blake. But Coyle still did some business on deadline day, bringing in Rodrigo Moreno on a season long loan from Benfica.

During the Spaniard's time there were flashes of potential but he was more off an impact sub and was limited to most of his appearances coming from the bench.

Last summer most business was again done early bringing in the likes of Chris Eagles and Nigel Reo-Coker coming in. However, manager Owen Coyle still felt the need to add to his squad bringing in French duo David Ngog for a reported £4million from Liverpool and Gael Kakuta on loan from Chelsea on deadline day.

Striker Ngog played 33 league games for Bolton and despite scoring some crucial goals such as the winners away at Aston Villa and Everton, didn’t have the impact that some fans hoped only scoring three league goals. Kakuta had a very minimal impact and despite scoring in the League Cup win at Villa, was disappointing coming off the bench and returned to Chelsea in January.

This deadline day Bolton fans will hope that the club can secure the signing of a defensive midfielder and add the steel to the midfield that seems to have been missing, giving a chance for a competitive challenge in the Championship.
