Powell made just three substitute appearances for the Foxes, with City losing all three of those games. But Bolton are prepared to offer him another chance as they seek promotion back to the Premier League.
Reports in the Daily Mail confirm that Powell has long been hailed as one of England’s great hopes but his attitude has been brought into question over recent seasons by coaches at United, Wigan and now Leicester.
The source continues, explaining how a star made in Crewe with the world at his feet, he announced his arrival with a thunderbolt goal in the 2-0 victory over Cheltenham Town in the 2012 League Two play-off final at Wembley Stadium.
It secured Crewe’s promotion to League One and helped convince Sir Alex Ferguson to sign him for United in a deal worth £6m. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce bemoaned how United’s financial muscle had blown them out of the water.
Powell scored on his United debut against Wigan and seemed tuned in to the task ahead, but his career has stalled in recent years, and now Bolton boss Neil Lennon will be hoping to get the 20-year-old back on track.
