Bolton Wanderers boss Sammy Lee hopes to hang onto midfielder Abdoulaye Faye.

"I have spoken to Abdoulaye and he has worked hard this week on the training ground and is eager to play on Saturday," Lee told the club's official website.

"I did leave him out of the last two matches, against Fulham and Portsmouth, because I felt the speculation was getting to him and it has been difficult for the boy.

"He has responded well this week and he will come into contention against Reading at the weekend."
