Ex-Sunderland defender training with Bolton Wanderers after Southend exit
Former Sunderland defender Joel Lynch has been training with Bolton Wanderers, it is reported.
The 33-year-old has been without a club since leaving Sunderland last summer and had been training with Southend.
However, the Southend Echo report Lynch has now moved on to Bolton in a bid to win a contract.
Clubs can sign free agents outside the transfer windows.
Lynch was released last summer as part of an overhaul of the Sunderland squad.
The Black Cats return to action away to MK Dons in League One Saturday.
