Wright, who signed for United soon after Chris Wilder took charge, helped the Blades out of League One but hasn’t played a first-team game since 2018.

Keith Hill’s Bolton are battling to avoid a second successive relegation, this time to League Two, after beginning the season with a 12-point deduction because of their financial problems.
