Permanent Deal for Remi Matthews Falls Through

Bolton have been thwarted in their efforts to land Remi Matthews on a permanent deal, meaning the on-loan goalkeeper has returned to Norwich City.

Matthews, who arrived at Wanderers in August, was due to convert his temporary stay into a full-time transfer upon the opening of the January transfer window, but it emerged on Thursday that the Trotters had been placed under an EFL embargo which prevented them from registering players.

The 24-year-old made four appearances during his stay at the University of Bolton Stadium, including three in the Championship when first-choice stopper Ben Alnwick picked up an injury earlier in the season.

Matthews' contract at Carrow Road is due to expire in June, although his performances for Bolton and Plymouth Argyle, previously, are sure to attract the attention of managers throughout the country.
