Former Bolton midfielder Chris Eagles is set to undergo a trial at Millwall, three months after he was released by Wanderers.

For the first time in his professional career, Eagles is a free agent and the fact that he has struggled to find a new club has surprised many followers of the game.

The 28-year-old was briefly linked with a shock move to League One side Bradford City earlier in the summer, but the former Manchester United academy graduate looks set to be handed a route back into Championship football by impressing Lions boss Ian Holloway during a trial period.

Eagles, who scored 19 goals in 106 appearances during a three-year spell with Bolton, has been keeping fit by training at a boxing gym in the Moss Side region of Manchester.

Speaking to The Bolton News earlier this month, Eagles said: "I went down to a boxing gym in Moss Side and I can't thank them enough for what they have done.

"I feel really great at the moment, it has been a supportive environment, and I'm ready to go again now.

"I've had a few options; it could be two days, it could be two weeks.

"But I've been up at 6.30am every morning working with some really great people like Ben Fanning (strength and conditioning coach), Ensley Bingham (boxer) and Maurice Coore (senior coach), who have really helped me a lot."
