Any hopes of selling Yanic Wildschut in the January transfer window are over after the Norwich City winger suffered a serious ankle injury according to reports coming out of Bolton.
News is emerging, although not officially confirmed, it seems, that Wildschut is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines that could be as long as three months. This report suggests he was injured in the FA Cup win over Walsall and will return to Norwich for rehabilitation.
Yanic is currently in the middle of a season-long loan to Bolton Wanderers and has been at the centre of a financial dispute between Norwich and Bolton that is reportedly because of around £200k in unpaid wages for Wildschut and another City player, Remi Matthews.
Goalkeeper, Matthews was also on-loan with the Trotters with a deal having been done for Bolton to buy him, presumably for a nominal fee, this month. Due to a registration embargo being placed on Bolton by the EFL, that deal is currently off and doesn’t look like being resurrected. Various reports surfaced last week suggesting that a deal between the two clubs to pay the money owed has been agreed though.
Getting back to Wildschut though, there had been speculation that Sheffield United were interested in either buying him or taking over the loan this month but that now looks highly unlikely.
