Bolton Step Up Garner Pursuit as Sunderland Close on Wyke

Reports on Tuesday suggest Bolton have stepped up their interest in Ipswich Town forward Joe Garner, having seemingly missed out on a deal for Charlie Wyke.

Garner, a product of the Blackburn Rovers academy, joined Town in a reported £1million transfer from Rangers in June 2017 and scored 10 goals last season as they secured a 12th-placed finish in the Championship.

The 30-year-old has been a long-term target for Trotters boss Phil Parkinson, who hopes to reach an agreement after Wyke moved closer to a switch to Sunderland.

The Black Cats are understood to have agreed an initial £500,000 fee for the Bradford City forward, which could rise to more than £1million with bonuses.
