The EFL have imposed tighter restrictions on Bolton's transfer embargo, limiting them to new signings on maximum contracts of £4,500-a-week.

As reported by The Bolton News, Wanderers had previously been forced to sign players on deals of no more than £11,500-a-week.

The ruling, understood to have been set by EFL officials last week, continues to restrict Bolton to a squad of 23 players, including loans lasting for a duration of half a season - as demonstrated by Adam Armstrong's move from Newcastle United.

As well as imposing a ban on transfer fees, Phil Parkinson is unable to pay for loan deals, meaning only wages falling within the salary cap can be covered from hereon in.

Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson is set to challenge the conditions of the EFL ruling, as the club continue to work towards clearing an embargo which has been in force since December 2015.
