Sullay Kaikai: Linked with switch to Championship trio

Bolton are reportedly set to young Crystal Palace striker Sullay Kaikai on loan in a bid to boost their forward options.

Wanderers have struggled for goals this term and have just one to their name in five Championship games this season, leading manager Neil Lennon to turn to the loan market.

Kaikai, 20, has progressed through the Eagles’ youth structure, but is yet to feature in the Premier League, where the likes of Connor Wickham and Patrick Bamford block his path into the side.

Kaikai has one senior appearance for the first team under his belt when he featured in a Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle last season. Kaikai scored a late equaliser to take the game into extra time, before the Magpies emerged as 3-2 winners thanks to a Paul Dummett goal.

Kaikai has already spent time on loan away from Selhurst Park having spent a short spell at Crawley Town in 2014, before a longer move to Cambridge United, where he won the club’s Young Player of the Year award.

In May this year, he picked up another individual accolade, winning Palace’s Development Player of the Year award for 2014/15.
