Bolton boss Gary Megson is hoping to bring another six players to the club this summer following the signing of Sean Davis.

The Wanderers boss has admitted he has made new bids for West Bromwich Albion's Paul Robinson and Swansea City's Ferrie Bodde, but is waiting to see whether either deal will come to fruition.

"Paul is a West Brom player at the moment. We have made an offer and we will wait and see what happens with that," Megson told Sky Sports.

"We have made an offer for Ferrie.

"We are where we are with that one and if Swansea do want to do business it will be on the price we have last done at.

"Otherwise we will move on because we have got one or two midfielders here that I am pleased with and every player has their price so we won't go above what we have offered so far."

The Trotters have also been linked with a move for Manchester City midfielder Gelson Fernandes and West Brom's Jonathan Greening, but Megson has denied he holds an interest in either player.

"Fernandes is very similar to a player we have got here so we are not involved in that one.

"We have not been involved with Jonathan Greening either. We could go on and on because I think we were linked with about 300 players last summer."

Despite making just one signing so far this summer, Megson believes he needs to bring another six players to the club to avoid the selection problems encountered last season.

"We've brought Sean in and I'd like to get six more players," he said.

"I don't want to be a football club like we were last year when we turned up at the Emirates with only two or three subs.

"It is always difficult because we are looking for players that can improve us from that 13th spot in the table."
