Bolton are set to end Tuncay’s Bundesliga hell and bring him back to the Premier League the Sun understands.
The Turkish striker has endured a nightmare time over in Germany after moving to Wolfsburg for £4.5 million from Stoke in January.
He was signed to replace Edin Dzeko after his big money move to Manchester City but failed to replace the prolific Bosnian.
Bolton are now set to bring him back to England with manager Owen Coyle prepared to pay £3 million to secure his services.
Tuncay was at the Reebok Stadium on Monday for talks over the move and the Wanderers boss is confident of completing the deal in the next few days ready for their Premier League opener away at promoted side QPR.
It will also end Coyle’s long search for a striker, which has lasted the entire summer.
The Bolton boss’ attacking options were ravaged after Johan Elmander left the club on a free and Daniel Sturridge went back to Chelsea when his loan spell came to an end.
However the acquisition of the 29-year-old Turkey international will prove to be a boost as he is an experienced Premier League performer.
Spells with Middlesbrough and then the Potters highlighted his work rate and skill although he was infuriatingly inconsistent at both clubs.
