Bolton Wanderers remain the favourites to sign Leeds keeper Andy Lonergan, despite late interest from the Blues and Sheffield Wednesday, according to reports this morning. The 28-year-old former Preston man, previously a Town target during Jim Magiltonâ€™s time as manager, was said to be the subject of Town interest at the end of last week.
Bolton have long been seen as the frontrunners for Lonerganâ€™s signature and are understood to have had a bid turned down by the Whites earlier this month. The Elland Road club are believed to want ÂŁ200,000 for the keeper, who has two years left on his contract.
Meanwhile, the Town squad arrived at their hotel near Eindhoven yesterday for their training camp, which runs until Friday.
The Blues play friendlies against Helmond Sport at their Stadion De Braak on Tuesday (KO 7pm local time) and Den Bosch at their 3,500-capacity Trainingscomplex, which is in Jan Sluytersstraat, on Thursday (KO 7pm local time).
Prior to the Helmond Sport match, a team of Town fans plus Blues legend Frans Thijssen, assembled by Spirit of 78, are facing a Helmond supporters XI in a game which will also be played at the Eerste Divisie clubâ€™s main stadium (KO 4pm). TWTD will be in Holland on the tour with Phil playing in the fansâ€™ game.
Squad: Ainsley, Bullard, Carson, Chambers, Chopra, Cresswell, Delaney, Drury, Edwards, Emmanuel-Thomas, Hewitt, Hyam, Lawrence, Lee-Barrett, Martin, Murray, Scotland, Stevenson, Whight.
