Bolton bring in Team USA's Ginja Ninja

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has flown in USA international Jeff Larentowicz for a trial - after a tip-off from Jurgen Klinsmann.
The powerful midfielder, nicknamed Big Red and the Ginja Ninja, has arrived at Wanderers after Colorado Rapids finished their MLS season.
Californian Larentowicz will train with Bolton and let Coyle see if he measures up, while also putting himself in the shop window for any other English club.
Coyle and Klinsmann struck up a rapport when the Germany legend, who is now USA coach, jetted to Lancashire to watch his man Stuart Holden in action.
Klinsmann is keen on some of his squad men gaining experience in Europe and late developer Larentowicz, capped twice recently, is one of those who could improve at a higher club level.
Coyle is happy to have a look at the 28-year-old ahead of making efforts to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.
