Last updated : 23 January 2007 By Matt Bottom
Sam Allardyce is keen to draft in a new right-back to provide cover for Nicky Hunt and a swoop for Diawara could be on the cards if Wanderers can strike a deal with the French club.

"I am satisfied, things are going very well," Diawara's agent Franck Belhasen told eurosport.

"He has passed a medical exam and will pass another tomorrow. I am hopeful he will pen a contract by tomorrow night (Tuesday).

"Bolton still have to negotiate a loan deal with St Etienne. It will be a loan deal with an option for permanent move."

Meanwhile, Celtic have agreed a deal to sign Cameroon defender and Bolton target Jean-Joel Perrier-Doumbe.
