Bolton manager Owen Coyle has repeated his liking of Gregg Wylde amid reports the former Rangers midfielder has decided to sign a three-year deal at the Reebok Stadium.
Aston Villa, Everton, Wigan, West Ham and Charlton were all linked with the Scotland Under 21 winger, who is a free agent.
Wylde was released from his contract after Rangers entered administration and his experience at such a young age has led to mass competition for his signature.
But Premier League relegation-threatened Bolton are rumoured to have won the race and Coyle has again been full of praise of the 20-year-old.
"He is a very talented young player, a wide player who excites me," said Coyle ahead of Saturday evening's FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham.
"He has played a lot of games for Rangers both domestically and in Europe."
