Bolton are still in talks with Bernard Mendy and Florent Laville over deals to bring both players to the Reebok Stadium on a permanent basis.
French pair Mendy and Laville helped the Wanderers retain their Barclaycard Premiership place last season after moving to the Reebok Stadium on loan
from Paris St Germain and Lyon respectively.
Talks with Laville are at an advanced stage, although no deal has yet been agreed, whilst the club could still sign Mendy despite the arrival of Greek
international Stylianos Giannakopoulos.
Chairman Phil Gartside said of former France Under-21 international Mendy on the club's official website, www.bwfc.co.uk: "There is still an outside
possibility that we may resurrect the deal and bring him back. But, as things stand, the deal is a bit on the expensive side."
Moves for central defender Laville are at a more advanced stage but a Wanderers spokesperson would only say: "We are still in negotiations."
