Colorado Rapids midfielder Jeff Larentowicz chasing Bolton deal
The American midfielder spent six weeks at Malmo FF in Sweden in 2004 before trying his luck with Ipswich Town in the Championship.
Following the success of Stuart Holden, manager Owen Coyle was eager to take a look at the 28-year-old after a recommendation from US coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
"First of all, to be considered is great, but to be given such an opportunity at a Premiership club is one that doesn't come around often.
"Since I've been here it's been everything I had imagined: fast paced, high intensity, fun, while everyone at Bolton has made me feel very welcome."
