Ian Evatt has confirmed he is interested in signing Kieran Lee to a contract at Bolton but is struggling to agree terms due to the restrictions of a salary cap.

Lee, who is available as a free agent after leaving Sheffield Wednesday this past summer, has trained with Wanderers for the past fortnight and has impressed enough to be offered an opportunity at League Two level for the remainder of the campaign.

The 32-year-old is eligible to sign for clubs outside of the transfer window, which opens this coming Friday, and Evatt remains hopeful a deal can be agreed for a midfielder who has more than 350 career appearances to his name.

"We would like to sign him but it has to be financially viable, that's the issue," Evatt told The Bolton News.

"We are speaking and will try to figure it out.

"In terms of other incomings, we have got one that is progressing quite nicely and then there will be others which we will identify as and when they become available when the window opens."
