Danny Ward is set to be handed a chance to stake his claim for a place in Bolton's first-team plans.
The 19-year-old striker has been sent out on loan to Swindon, Coventry and Huddersfield during the last two seasons.
But he is expected to be given a chance to catch the eye of manager Owen Coyle during the Trotters' pre-season tour of the USA.
While Coyle is understood to be in the market for more firepower - Kevin Davies and Ivan Klasnic are currently Bolton's only senior strikers - Ward will be hoping to make a favourable impression in America.
There is sure to be plenty of interest if the promising youngster is made available for another loan move, though.
It is understood Wanderers have been contacted by a handful of League One and Two clubs over loan deals for many of their young starlets, including Ward, Tom Eaves and Michael O'Halloran.
But Coyle is willing to check out each one of them in the club's eight pre-season friendlies, which commence on Thursday July 14, with a game against FC Tampa Bay.
The Premier League side then play Orlando SC on July 17 before contesting the Charities Cup against MLS side Houston Dynamo on July 20.
