Former Wanderers ‘keeper Remi Matthews is training with Ipswich Town.

The 26-year-old is a free agent after spending two years with the Whites and is on the lookout for a new club.

The former Norwich man is local to the Ipswich area and was with Paul Lambert’s squad as they returned to training on Wednesday having finished 11th in the curtailed League One season that saw Bolton relegated.

According to the East Anglian Daily Times, Matthews asked to join up with the Tractor Boys as he looks to keep himself fit.

Wanderers have only Matt Alexander on their books in terms of keepers with Ian Evatt’s former Blackpool team-mate Matt Gilks set to arrive in a player-coach role.

Bolton are interested in Sheffield United’s Jake Eastwood but are waiting on several factors before a move can materialise.

The future of Blades loanee Dean Henderson, who could return to Manchester United or stay at Bramall Lane for another season, is one thing, as is whether Eastwood is released of offered a new deal in South Yorkshire.

Matthews, who stuck with the Whites throughout the club’s financial troubles, told The Bolton News earlier this month that he would be open to extending his time at the University of Bolton Stadium into a third season but was happy to keep his options open.

“If Bolton contacted me then they would always be an option,” he said

“It is a big club and it has been a privilege to play here, no matter what has happened.

“At the moment I’m just waiting. I don’t feel there is a huge rush because we don’t know when the season will start yet.

“Yes, it would be nice to nail something down early but there’s certainly been no need for me to jump into the first thing that comes my way.

“I’d like to think that in my position there will be other offers and that I will be able to weight up my options.

“I’d be happy to stay at Bolton if an offer came along – but equally if it’s my time to move on then you won’t hear me say a bad word about the place, I’d wish the club nothing but well in the future.

“I’ll always look for their results because even with everything we’ve been through I’ve enjoyed playing for Bolton. It’s a massive club – and that’s why I signed there, it’s why I stayed there.”
