Bolton boss Owen Coyle has confirmed his interest in signing Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Following Jussi Jaaskelainen's summer move to West Ham United, Wanderers are on the hunt for a goalkeeper who will provide competition for Adam Bogdan.

Speculation linking Bolton with a move for Lonergan has surfaced in recent weeks and Coyle has, for the first time, made his interest public.

"There are a number of goalkeepers that have been in the frame, and Andy is one that has been mentioned," Coyle told The Bolton News.

"He's a goalkeeper I've known about for many years and he played against my Burnley team for Preston in a season that he was probably the outstanding keeper in the whole Championship.

"There was a lot of interest from Everton at the time, I'm led to believe, so I know all about him but there are three or four others out there at the moment, so we'll see what the next couple of weeks brings."
