Bolton are determined to retain the services of Luca Connell, after it emerged administrators have turned down a resignation request from the player and his agent.

Connell, who stepped up from Wanderers' under-18 side to make 12 first-team appearances last season, is a subject of interest from clubs throughout England and Scotland, and was photographed on a tour of Celtic Park on Thursday just days after admitting it 'would be an honour to represent' the Scottish Premiership champions.

On Friday afternoon, The Bolton News reported the 18-year-old had formally submitted a letter of resignation - a move already made by Sammy Ameobi and Pawel Olkowski during the post-season - but had been knocked back by representatives of David Rubin & Partners, who are desperate to ensure he does not leave the University of Bolton Stadium without commanding a substantial transfer fee.
