One of Bolton Wanderers’ biggest achievements during the last January transfer window was Dapo Afolayan.
The former Sollihull Moors man was recruited by Ian Evatt on loan from West Ham United youth squad.
The forward arrived on the club’s transfer deadline day from the Premier League and became a regular holder for the Wanderers in the second half of the last campaign as Bolton secured a promotion out of League Two.

Declan John was also loaned out last January from Swansea City.
The former Rangers man was frozen at Liberty Stadium and trained with the youth teams before arriving at the Wanderers and becoming the premier left-back.
Both players turned their loan spells into permanent stays at Wanderers last summer after their time at parent clubs ended.
As of now, the Wanderers have loaned only one player to the club, Xavier Amaechi from Hamburg.
And Ian Evatt has confirmed that Wanderers are set to use the loan market in the next transfer window.
He said: “We have to look at the loans.
“Obviously the style and the way we play, and the club it is and where we are in the country – we are an attractive proposition for these great Category 1 teams to send their best young players on loan. , so it’s great for us that we’ll have that option. “
With the recruiting of Afolayan from the Hammers last January on loan and the big success his capture turned out to be, Wanderers are hoping to repeat that round next month.
