Bolton Wanderers chairman Phil Gartside is lining up a dream ticket of Chris Coleman and Gary Speed to take the club forward.
Gartside wants Speed to work as Coleman's assistant and has already made an approach to the Real Sociedad coach's representatives, says the Independent.
Coleman's Real Sociedad side have rallied after a bad start in the obscurity of Spain's Segunda Liga and walking out on the passionate Basque fans after four months would be difficult. But Coleman's family have remained in Britain and the prospect of a prompt return to the Premier League, with a considerably higher salary, might prove irresistible.
"He [Coleman] loves it there and has blended into the life but the Premier League has attractions for managers," Coleman's agent, Alan Smith, said yesterday.
