Bolton Manager Says Sebastien Le Toux Is On Trial

Sebastien Le Toux's move to Bolton may not be quite as much of a done deal as previously reported, but manager Owen Coyle did confirm that the Philadelphia Union forward is on trial with the Wanderers (via SkySports). Le Toux, who was playing in the USL as recently as 2008, will apparently have about a week to prove his worth.

"We have received good reports about Sebastien, so we thought we would give him an opportunity to come into the group," confirmed the Scot. "He will train with us for a week and we will see where we are after that."

Coyle denied that a deal is already in place for Le Toux's transfer. What kind of price Le Toux could fetch is a bit of an unknown. He is 28 years old and really only has two years of top-level play under his belt. Previous transfers from MLS have usually been for more defensive players or ones that were considerably younger.

If Le Toux were to join Bolton, he could end up being one of three former MLS players on the team. Stuart Holden is already there and the Wanderers are still in talks to bring Tim Ream to Reebok Stadium. Ream's work-permit hearing has reportedly been pushed back until next week. Le Toux would require no such hearing as he is a French citizen and thus automatically qualified.
