Bolton Wanderers manager Ian Evatt has revealed that discussions are still “ongoing” with Rovers over Tom White’s future.
The midfielder is currently on loan at the University Of Bolton Stadium from Rovers, but he has found opportunities hard to come by and is without an appearance for the League Two side since mid-December, which was just a three-minute cameo against Walsall.
Speculation has surrounding his future at Bolton since the transfer window re-opened, and despite early signs indicating White was on his way back to Rovers, there has been no movement as of yet, and this is a situation that could go all the way to the wire – with the window shutting on Monday at 11pm.
Evatt spoke to The Manchester Evening News about the discussions with Rovers: “They’re still ongoing, I think that will go right up until the last day of the window really. I would think there will be some sort of announcement but not until very late.”
Should he make a return to Ewood, White is likely to remain with the U23s for the rest of the season, and he could be a direct replacement for Brad Lyons, who is currently on loan at Morecambe.
White’s contract with the club expires this summer, and at the age of 23, it could be his last season in the Blue and White halves after signing from Gateshead in July 2019.
