Bolton Wanderers are interested Hibernian’s former Barnsley defender Adam Jackson according to journalist Alan Nixon.
Hibernian signed the twenty-five-year-old in the summer following his release by Barnsley. He made forty-four appearances during a three spell at Oakwell, featuring six times in the Tykes League One promotion campaign last season.
Bolton. Taking an interest in Adam Jackson at Hibs. English lad. Defender. Casting the net wide. Not for green light for Wheater and Dunne as yet.

The former Middlesborough trainee has made only six Scottish Premier League outings for Hibs since his move, and the speculation over his future suggests new Hibs boss Jack Ross is open to letting him leave, presumably on loan.
Jackson signed a two-year deal with the Edinburgh outfit on his arrival linking up once again with his former boss Paul Heckingbottom who was then sacked in November.
The centre-half is former England Under-19 international and enjoyed loan spells at Coventry and Hartlepool before leaving Middlesborough for Barnsley in 2016.
Bolton are in the hunt for defenders following the return Sheffield United’s Jake Wright and Preston’s Josh Earl to their parent clubs in the wake of a performance full of defensive errors during the recent 4-3 defeat by Burton Albion.
Not sure Jackson would be the answer to Bolton’s defensive woes.
His career seems less than impressive, and most Bolton fans will be hoping they get Jimmy Dunne over the line and see a return for former club captain David Wheater.
If he does sign, he might well be for back up only.
