Bolton starlet Hyuga Tanner is to quit the club at the end of the season, after being denied a place in the first-team squad.

Tanner joined Wanderers on a free transfer from Blackburn Rovers last September and has made 24 appearances for the club's development squad this season, but squad restrictions imposed by an EFL transfer embargo have prevented the 19-year-old from having the opportunity to feature in League One.

The Australian midfielder, who moved to England at the age of 14, hopes to remain in the country but has not ruled out the option of returning back home, as he looks to build a senior career that has been taken away from him thus far at Bolton.

"Unfortunately the embargo has stopped me playing first-team football and I need to be out there getting some first-team experience," Tanner told FourFourTwo.

"So at the end of this season I'll be looking to go elsehwere and push for first-team action as the embargo doesn't seem to be getting lifted anytime.

"Hopefully I can find that here in the UK, because I love playing here but if it means to go somewhere abroad again that can be an option too."
