André Moritz harbours hopes of a reunion with former manager Dougie Freedman at Bolton, following his release from newly-promoted Premier League outfit Crystal Palace.

Moritz joined the Eagles under the watch of Freedman in the summer of 2012, joining the club on a one-year deal from Turkish first division side Mersin İdmanyurdu. The Brazilian playmaker represented the South London club on twenty-seven occasions, netting five times.

Upon promotion to the top flight, talks between Moritz and the Eagles stalled after the player raised concerns about the future of the team and his involvement within it by manager Ian Holloway. As a result, no deal was agreed and the player walked away.

Freedman, now Bolton Wanderers manager, held talks with Moritz ahead of Tuesday's trip to League One Rotherham United. Whilst the attacking midfielder has received contact from clubs based in China and Brazil, it is understood that he is keen to work under Freedman once more.

Moritz cited a lack of first-team football as the motive for not renewing his deal at Selhurst Park, and it appears that Freedman is prepared to offer the Brazilian just that to lure him to the Reebok.
