BOLTON WANDERERS boss Sam Allardyce is confident it will be a case of one in, one out, at The Reebok Stadium.
The Lancashire outfit have resurrected their interest in Nantes striker Pierre-Yves Andre, just as he was putting the finishing touches to a six-month move with Lille.
"He is not in the country yet," Allardyce told planetfootball.com. "We are just waiting for him.
"Fingers crossed, that will be done."
With the midnight deadline rapidly approaching, Bolton will be keen to wrap up their transfer business with Michael Ricketts expected to join Middlesbrough in a £4 million move.
Allardyce is confident that the sale of the England cap will go through, even though Bolton have officially claimed they have not received a bid from Boro, but he is awaiting an update from Wanderers.
Andre will be keen to secure his future after deciding to snub the deal with Lille.
