Last Updated: 21/02/18 10:12pm
Jan Kirchhoff is in talks to sign with Sky Bet Championship club Bolton until end of the season, according to Sky sources.
The 27-year-old defensive midfielder has been without a club since leaving Sunderland at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
Kirchoff joined the Black Cats from Bayern Munich in January 2016 but managed to make just 23 appearances for the club during his time at the Stadium of Light.
The former Germany U21 international struggled with injuries while at Sunderland and was released by the club when his 18-month contract expired at the end of last season.
Bolton are currently four points clear of the relegation places in the Championship after beating Kirchhoff's former side Sunderland 1-0 on Tuesday night.
The Black Cats remain bottom of the table and are now three points adrift of safety following their defeat to the Trotters.
