NEIL LEN­NON is al­ready dreaming about what in­form hit­man Adam Le Fon­dre could achieve as a per­ma­nent Bolton Wan­der­ers player.

The 28-year-old marks­man ar­rived on loan from Cham­pi­onship ri­vals Cardiff City in Jan­uary and hit the ground run­ning in front of goal, in­clud­ing a dou­ble in the Trot­ters’ 2-0 win over Mill­wall last month.

Fol­low­ing that dis­play, Le Fon­dre re­vealed his im­me­di­ate fu­ture was un­cer­tain and ad­mit­ted Len­non had shown some in­ter­est in ty­ing him down for next sea­son.

“If you score goals, the fans love you and I want to be loved,” he said.“I am a striker and strik­ers are meant to be he­roes. That’s what I want to be.”

And now the Wan­der­ers manager ad­mits se­cur­ing a per­ma­nent deal for the for­mer Read­ing striker could prove to be a wise move.

“God knows how many he’d have if he had been with us from the start of the sea­son,” said Len­non.“But hav­ing said that, I think he can get bet­ter.

“If he is with us next sea­son – which may or may not hap­pen – then we will en­deav­our to make him bet­ter in gen­eral.”
