Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle is planning to raid former club Burnley for midfielder Wade Elliott.

The Lancashire Telegraph says Coyle is ready to line up a bid for the Clarets winger and raid his old club, possibly as early as today.

Elliott has been at Turf Moor since Steve Cotterill signed him on a free transfer from Bournemouth in May 2005, agreeing a contract extension under Coyle in 2008.

With a year left to run on that deal, Elliott would command a fee.
