Bolton Wanderers’ financial situation is not good, we all know that. However, it seems that they might owe a considerable sum of money to Norwich City for the loans of Yanic Wildschut and Remi Matthews.
At the weekend, we brought you the news that Remi Matthews was returning to Norwich due to a transfer registration embargo being enforced by the FA and EFL. You can read more about that here.
Matthews was loaned to Bolton last summer with a view to a permanent transfer being completed in January. Due to the registration embargo though, the deal has fallen through and Remi has returned to Norfolk.
Bolton face a similar issue with Christian Doidge and Forest Green, who are apparently not happy either. Striker, Doidge had joined on loan on 31st August 2018 with the deal due to be made permanent this January, just like with Remi.
Yanic Wildschut is another Canary on loan at Bolton, with a season-long loan deal being arranged last July. It seems though, according to journalist Alan Nixon, that Bolton owe Norwich quite a few quid with regard to unpaid wages for the Norwich pair.
BOLTON. Owe NORWICH a sizeable six figure sum in unpaid wages for loanees Wildschut and Matthews. More online shortly.

Nixon has written a piece for the Sun in which he reports that Bolton owe City a “sizeable six figure sum” in un-paid wages for the two players. He says, get this, that Bolton were supposed to be paying £12k per week towards Yanic’s wages.
Wow, £12k per week, that means he’s probably on a fair bit more than that, approaching £20k maybe?
Anyway, Norwich are said to fuming about all this and are ready to go to the EFL to attempt to get recompense.
