Bolton owner Eddie Davies is said to be blocking Josh Vela's move to Cardiff City, after the Bluebirds had a £500,000 offer accepted by Wanderers.

Cardiff made an initial approach for Vela in December, but have now made their move with a formal offer after the Trotters' precarious financial situation hit critical stage.

Now, in a dramatic twist to recent events at Macron Stadium, Davies, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon, has made his opinion known regarding a potential sale of the 22-year-old and is determined to hold on to a player that has progressed through the club's academy since the age of eight.

With the futures of Zach Clough and Mark Davies up in the air, with respective moves to Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday in doubt, both players, along with Vela, could be surprise additions to the Wanderers squad for Tuesday's Championship fixture at Hillsborough.
