Bolton chairman Phil Gartside has revealed the newly-relegated side plan to halve their wage bill by the start of next season.
An 11-year stay in the Barclays Premier League ended for Bolton last Sunday and Gartside said he will be looking towards the club's academy to bear fruit, with several players set to leave manager Owen Coyle's squad over the summer.
"If you look at our wage bill this year compared to what it was last year, allowing for a couple of people to come in, it will be up to 50 per cent of what we paid out last year," Gartside told BBC Radio Manchester.
