Bolton Wanderers: Ken Anderson hopes to resolve Dean Holdsworth ownership issue

Bolton have been under a Football League transfer embargo since December 2015

Bolton Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson has revealed the club are currently losing £800,000 a month.

They face the threat of administration unless a deal is struck between Anderson and director Dean Holdsworth.

The pair led the consortium that bought the club for £7.5m, but Anderson is now seeking to become the sole owner.

He told BBC Radio Manchester: "We're both sensible people and want the best for the club, I think it will happen sooner rather than later."

Speaking at a fans' forum on Tuesday, Anderson said he was "very confident" there would be a resolution.

He also told supporters:

  • They will have 11 contracted players next season with 17 players out of contract
  • He expects no players to leave in January
  • Manager Phil Parkinson is not looking to add to his squad
  • The club could break even next season when the big earners leave
  • There has been no foreign interest in making an investment

Bolton, who were relegated from the Championship last season, are just a point behind leaders Scunthorpe after their 4-0 win over Gillingham on Monday.
