Norwich City are said to be seeking the advice of the EFL, after it emerged Bolton have failed to pay the wages of on-loan duo Remi Matthews and Yanic Wildschut.

Matthews, whose temporary switch was due to be converted into an 18-month permanent move last week, returned to training with the Canaries on Monday after an EFL registration embargo placed upon Wanderers put a halt on the transfer.

The 24-year-old, who made four appearances for the Trotters this season, is reported to be on a weekly wage in the region of £6,000, while the player's partner recently gave up a job in order to join him in moving up north.

Wildschut, meanwhile, remains at the University of Bolton Stadium as per the terms of his season-long loan, although Norwich are said to be exploring the possibility of a break clause that would see him recalled to Carrow Road.

The former Wigan Athletic midfielder earns a wage of around £12,000-per-week, meaning the total owed by Wanderers to Norwich now lies in excess of £250,000.
