This Week's Done Deals

June 15-21, 2015 - The Week in Rumours

Numancia forward Sergi Enrich has fuelled rumours over his future by revealing he is open to offers from clubs in the Championship. The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Bolton in recent weeks. (Menorca Al)

The futures of both Eidur Gudjohnsen and Emile Heskey are in doubt, with reports on Thursday suggesting the pair are yet to be offered new contracts - with their existing deals due to expire on June 30. That coming despite an announcement last month, from player agency company MN2S Talent Agency, that Heskey had agreed terms on an additional 12 months with Wanderers. (The Bolton News)

Liam Moore, of Leicester City and current England under-21 international, was last week being touted for a potential loan switch to Macron Stadium, although any decision on the Foxes' part is likely to be made towards the end of August. (The Sun)

Finally, this week, Real Sociedad's Alfred Finnbogason is likely to be beyond the reach of Bolton, with the club's financial restraints seemingly ending any interest in the Iceland international. (The Bolton News)
