Bolton boss Dougie Freedman unsure if Middlesbrough will sell Lukas Jutkiewicz

Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman does not know whether there is a chance of signing on-loan striker Lukas Jutkiewicz at the end of the season as it depends on Middlesbrough's plans for him.

Jutkiewicz has impressed at Bolton since arriving on loan in January and has previously made it clear that he would be interested in extending his stay beyond the summer.

However, Boro have given Bolton no indication over whether they would be prepared to let him go on a permanent basis and Freedman acknowledges that is the key factor.

"Of course we'd all like to see good players come to the football club, but I can't say whether that's going to be him," Freedman told the Bolton Evening News.

"You can ask me a hundred times if we'd like to sign him, but the question should be do they want to sell?

"Middlesbrough will probably say 'no' now. I can't go anywhere with that.

"I have got to go through a lot of questions before I can put my hand on my heart and say to the fans 'yes, we'll be doing this'."

While Freedman is reluctant to get his hopes up over a permanent move for Jutkiewicz, Bolton forward Jermaine Beckford has made no secret of his desire to see a deal completed for a player he has enjoyed lining up with.

"He's been something I personally think we could have done with a lot sooner," said Beckford. "He would have made a difference to us.

"It was one of those things - he wasn't available earlier in the season but once we did get him, he's been fantastic.

"Hopefully, we'll still be able to do something in the summer, fingers-crossed."
