Ken Anderson has revealed Bolton were recently unsuccessful in their attempts to land a forward in a £900,000 loan-to-buy deal.

Wanderers, who have been heavily linked with Milton Keynes Dons' Chuks Aneke, as well as losing out to Wigan Athletic in an attempt to sign Joe Garner from Ipswich Town, are actively seeking a replacement for Adam Le Fondre after he completed a move to Sydney FC.

The Trotters chairman insists work is ongoing to bolster the squad ahead of the August 31 deadline, with attention now switching to a pair of Championship players.

"There are still a couple of weeks to go until the loan window closes and we are working tirelessly to strengthen our squad," Anderson told

"We recently had an offer of £900,000 turned down for a striker we wanted on loan which would have been made permanent in January.

"We have now moved on and are currently talking to two Championship players with a view to a loan move."
