The Football League Paper - - STUART GRAY - By Neil Fissler

WY­COMBE are not only fight­ing to keep hold of their Foot­ball League sta­tus but also highly-rated young­ster Matt In­gram.

The 20-year-old has made more than 50 ap­pear­ances for his home­town club this sea­son and has been earn­ing rave re­views from scouts.

And de­spite Wy­combe fight­ing at the bot­tom of the ta­ble Pre­mier League clubs have been flock­ing to watch him in ac­tion.

In­gram, who was on work ex­pe­ri­ence at Ox­ford City last sea­son, could now be on the verge of a dream move to one of the big­gest clubs in the coun­try.

Ar­se­nal have been reg­u­lar watch­ers at Adams Park and Arsene Wenger could make a move for In­gram at the end of the sea­son.

He is ex­pect­ing tough com­pe­ti­tion in the race to sign up In­gram, who in Jan­uary 2011 was selected for an Eng­land goal­keep­ing train­ing camp.

Crys­tal Palace boss Tony Pulis is a an­other man­ager who has been keep­ing close tabs on his progress since the turn of the year. BURN­LEY could hand Ip­swich Town de­fender Aaron Cress­well the chance of play­ing in the Pre­mier League next sea­son.

The Clarets are set to make a num­ber of sign­ings fol­low­ing pro­mo­tion to the top flight and Cress­well is a player they are in­ter­ested in. BOLTON are set to call in a favour and win the race to land Chelsea young­ster Jeremie Boga on a sea­son-long loan next sea­son.

Bolton had a clause in­serted into Gary Cahill’s deal when he moved to Stam­ford Bridge two years ago that they could have a Chelsea star­let on loan in the fu­ture.

Now Bolton boss Dougie Freed­man had set his sights on the 17-year-old French mid­fielder this sea­son but was told Chelsea didn’t want him play­ing first team foot­ball yet

oga, who was born in Mar­seille and is a French un­der-17 in­ter­na­tional, played a star­ring role in the Blues’ run to the FA Youth Cup Fi­nal.

They will now face Ful­ham in the fi­nal and will al­low Boga to get some valu­able first team ex­pe­ri­ence next term.

Boga has al­ready trained with the full French na­tional side and is likely to move north for the start of the new cam­paign.
