Bolton want Burnley target Nimani

Last updated : 19 January 2010 By Tony Scholes
The Marseille born Nimani is keen to move to England and attracted interest from Birmingham last summer as well as SPL club Celtic. Nothing came of that and he's remained with Monaco for whom he made a debut in 2006.

He's had brief loan spells with FC Lorient and Sedan but the first of those loans was cut short after a fall out with the manager.

Nimani can't get a place in the Monaco side at the moment and said: "I'm not happy to be on the bench, but I am 21 years old and I have time on my side. I have only started two games this season and played in eight games.

"I have heard about Burnley and that would be a fantastic opportunity for a young player like me. I am waiting to see what will happen in the transfer window."

Reports last night suggested he was being flown in for talks, but news from the Bolton area this morning is that they would like to take him to the Reebok.
