Bolton boss Owen Coyle has shrugged off reports he is lining up a loan move for Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

The England international has started just two Premier League games this season and City manager Roberto Mancini admitted last week he is likely to leave the Blues on a short-term deal this month in order to get first-team football.

Birmingham and Fulham were linked with the 29-year-old before Bolton were mooted as a possible destination.

But Wright-Phillips' wages may be beyond Bolton's budget and Coyle confirmed the Trotters have not approached their local rivals.

"We can sit here and a million names can be bandied about," he said.

"But the bottom line is that there is nothing positive or concrete to report on players. It's pure speculation."

Bolton lie seventh in the Premier League after a positive first half of the season and Coyle is yet to act in the transfer window.
