Bolton boss Owen Coyle says he is looking forward to welcoming Danny Ward back to the Reebok Stadium after the forward's loan spell with Swindon finishes.

Ward has made a big impression since joining the Robins in December and scored in each leg of their Coca-Cola League One play-off semi-final, as well as netting a penalty in the shoot-out which saw Swindon overcome Charlton to reach the final against Millwall at Wembley.

The 18-year-old has made only two substitute appearances for Wanderers but, Coyle said: "I have contacted Danny and told him to go and light up Wembley in the final. I am looking forward to seeing him in pre-season."

Meanwhile, Bolton's pursuit of Ivory Coast striker Aruna Dindane appears to be over after his agent Willie McKay claimed the 29-year-old - who has been on loan at Portsmouth - would be leaving Lens for a club in Qatar.

That may leave the door open for Croatian striker Ivan Klasnic to return to Wanderers next season.

Klasnic scored eight goals in just 12 starts following his loan move to the Reebok from Nantes last September.
