Bolton's international contingent may be dwindling, but three players will represent their nations during the current break.

Several of Wanderers' jetsetters have departed Macron Stadium since the previous round of call-ups, with the likes of Adam Bogdan, Eidur Gudjohnsen, Tim Ream, Barry Bannan, Simeon Slavchev, Georg Iliev and Luke Woodland all moving on.

The current break is unlikely to have a major impact on Neil Lennon's preparations for next weekend's visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Medo Kamara the only recognised senior player set to be absent.

Kamara hasn't featured for the Trotters since Neil Lennon succeeded Dougie Freedman as manager in October of last year and was the subject of reported interest from Bristol City on Tuesday's transfer deadline day.

The 27-year-old has been named in the Sierra Leone squad for Saturday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ivory Coast at Port Harcourt, in Nigeria.

Elsewhere, Jamie Thomas has been called into the Wales under-19 squad for their friendly against Poland, while Conor Wilkinson, who is on loan at Barnsley until January, is part of the Republic of Ireland under-21 squad for their forthcoming games against Qatar and Andorra.

Conor Wilkinson (Republic of Ireland U21)
04/09/2015 - Republic of Ireland U21 v Qatar U23 (International Friendly)
08/09/2015 - Andorra U21 v Republic of Ireland U21 (UEFA U21 European Championships Qualifier)
