Paolo Di Canio has revealed the reason why Joe Riley's proposed loan move to Swindon Town fell through.

As revealed last week, Riley was set to make the temporary switch to the County Ground. He reportedly turned up for training on Monday morning, before returning to Bolton after picking up a minor injury.

Speaking at the weekend, Di Canio claimed to have a good knowledge of players in the Premier League and Football League, but admitted to not knowing Riley.

"Joe Riley, if I'm not wrong, is a good right-back," said the Italian. "Not because I have good information, but I have to have a vocabulary about all the players.

"I know every single player from League Two to the Premier League but I don't know who he is, I don't know his face. We will see for the future."
