Remi Matthews has reportedly returned to Norwich after his loan deal with Bolton was unable to be made permanent due to Wanderers’ transfer registration embargo.
Matthews joined Bolton last summer with a view to a permanent move this January but the embargo seems to have put the mockers on that and HITC Sport are reporting that Norfolk born Remi has returned to City after making four appearances in his loan spell with the Trotters.
Remi has previously spent most of his time as a Norwich player out on loan at Burton Albion, Doncaster Rovers, Hamilton and Plymouth before the latest loan which came about after he failed to impress during pre-season and the club decided to sign Tim Krul.
I can’t find any official confirmation of this yet and the Bolton News are reporting this in a little more detail.
They report that former Canary Gary O’Neil and Christian Doidge are also left in limbo and cannot play in Bolton’sthird round FA Cup tie against Walsall unless special dispensation is granted by the EFL and the Football Association.
HITC report that Matthews would still be allowed to leave Norwich in January if another club become interested and if Bolton cannot resolve the issue.
They also report that several clubs have been alerted to Remi’s availability but none are named.
