Trotters target Powell

Leicester City Training Session

Bolton Wanderers are leading the race to sign Manchester United forward Nick Powell, who has made just two appearances for Leicester City after spending the first half of the season on-loan with Premier League strugglers.

The 20-year-old is also a loan target for Blackburn Rovers and Leeds United after his unsuccessful loan period with Leicester City comes to an end.

Manchester United paid a reported £6 million to Crewe Alexandra for Powell and he went on to score on his Premier League debut against Wigan after replacing Ryan Giggs.
