The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

NEW loan sign­ing Barry Ban­nan says it won’t take long be­fore Bolton are singing from the same hymn-sheet af­ter a flurry of ar­rivals at the Macron Sta­dium.

The Trot­ters wel­comed four play­ers on dead­line day as Ban­nan, Simeon Slavchev and Saidy Janko all joined on loan, while Czech mid­fielder Filip Twardzik is a per­ma­nent sign­ing from Celtic.

And boss Neil Len­non’s tweak­ing is pay­ing off al­ready as Manch­ester United loa­nee Janko grabbed a de­but goal in a victory over Ful­ham on Tues­day.

Mid­fielder Ban­nan, 25, him­self has ar­rived from Crys­tal Palace – with Lee Chung-Yong head­ing the other way – and he hints he would be open to mak­ing the deal a per­ma­nent one.

“There are a lot of new lads all in at once, and one or two who don’t re­ally speak English but you tend to find foot­ball has its own lan­guage. I don’t think it’ll mat­ter too much, we’ll get to know how the manager wants us to play,” he said.

“At the mo­ment I’m just con­cen­trat­ing on play­ing as many games as I can while I’m at Bolton.You never know what might hap­pen at the end of it.”
