Leeds: Bolton Wanderers are closing in on the signing of Leeds United keeper Andy Lonergan – and the deal could be completed this weekend.

A deal in the region of £200,000 is thought to be close, with Bolton boss Owen Coyle keen to land Lonergan before the club head off to Scotland for a pre-season tour on Tuesday.

That cash would boost Neil Warnock’s transfer kitty and could be used to push through a deal for SK Brann defensive midfielder Rodolph Austin, with United having tabled a bid according to sources in Norway.

Ex-Coventry City central defender Martin Crainie has joined up with United for pre-season training - after leaving the Sky Blues at the end of last month.

Warnock has confirmed he has received ‘three or four enquiries’ from clubs regarding striker Ross McCormack.
