Norwich City could be set to take advantage of the on-going financial crisis at Bolton Wanderers by signing Wanderers’ young midfielder, Dennis Politic according to Sun Sport journalist, Alan Nixon.
Norwich. Going to exploit the Bolton troubles by signing young Politic. For nothing. ????

Bolton are currently in the midst of a horrendous financial situation that has crippled the club’s summer plans, put them into administration which means they start the forthcoming season with a 12 point deduction, seen players not paid for 20 weeks and leaving a first-team squad of just seven conducting strike action.
A planned friendly against Preston North End has had to be cancelled which follows on the back of the cancellation of another match against Chester and some players are battling to find a way out of the club’s financial meltdown, citing a breach of their contracts due to lack of wages being paid. Some of those have handed in notices explaining that they intend to leave, such as Josh McGinnis and Erhun Oztumer but these notices have been rejected by the club with Wanderers wanting transfer fees.
It’s a horrible situation for the fans and the players to be in, with ex-City goalkeeper, Remi Matthews being one of the players involved.
A consortium under the name “Football Ventures” is looking to buy the stricken club but there are other issues that keep arising between the current owner, Ken Anderson and former Watford owner, Laurence Bassini who unsuccessfully tried to buy the club from Anderson earlier in the year. It was the collapse of that buy-out by Bassini that plunged Bolton into administration and Wanderers administrators are reportedly taking legal action against Bassini.
Anyway, back to Dennis Politic.

He is 19 and spent part of last season on-loan with Salford City where he impressed. With all the uncertainty at his parent club, he did look set to play a big part in next season’s first-team squad but could, by the sound of it, be about to join the Canaries’ U23 revolution at Colney.
