The Trotters are in the market for fresh faces after enduring a difficult start to the 2013/14 Championship campaign.

With the loan window open, Freedman had been hoping to dip into the Premier League ranks to bring hungry players with plenty of potential onto his books.

He has, however, been left frustrated in his efforts, with top flight clubs reluctant to part with those they use as part of a rotation policy which helps to keep first team regulars fresh.

Freedman told the Bolton News: "It's not really a question I can answer.

"Maybe it's one for the England set-up. You should ask Roy (Hodgson) what he thinks about players sitting there week in, week out and not learning their trade.

"We would like to bring in players but right now there isn't the quality and that is because the Premier League boys are keeping the players for the Capital One Cup or Europe.

"You can get the real younger players but are they the right ones just now? I think probably not."
