Bolton linked with Hibs defender Adam Jackson

Last updated : 08 January 2020 By Steve Forbes

According to respected journalist Alan Nixon (@reluctantnicko) on twitter. English side Bolton Wanderers are weighing up a move for Hibs defender Adam Jackson.

The out-of-favour former Barnsley defender has struggled to hold down a place in the first team, since arriving at Easter Road on a free transfer last summer.

Jackson has only managed 6 appearances in the SPFL premiership this season, his last coming as a sub against Aberdeen in December.

The appearance against Aberdeen was his only one in the last 10 games.

When you add in the early Betfred Cup games, he has managed 12 all together.

Jackson could now be offered an escape route, if the struggling English League One side make a move.

He signed a two-year-deal when he arrived in Edinburgh, so the Hibees may want a fee, or Hibs boss Jack Ross may see this as a chance to free-up some wages, to bring in his own players.


Jackson looked a shrewd signing when he arrived from England in the summer.

The 25-year-old has decent experience at a good level, but he has struggled to force his way in to the team.

With the departure of the manager who signed him, Paul Heckingbottom, Jackson may see this as a chance to return home to England.

It would also free up some wages for Jack Ross to enter the transfer market with.
