Arsenal are helping Bolton by speeding up payments for centre-half Rob Holding.
The Gunners signed Holding, 22, in July last year for £2.5million and he has started ten games this season.
He is tipped to become a regular in time.
The deal to buy Holding included extras and instalments, but Arsenal have been paying sooner than originally planned.
Chairman Ken Anderson has ended talks with likely buyers of cash-strapped Bolton.
He claimed that most did not come up with the cash, despite revealing recently that talks were ongoing with two ‘credible’ options in the Far East and Eastern Europe.
After signing for the Gunners earlier this year, the 22-year-old was called into action to fill in for injured defensive duo Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista.
In the final two months of last season, the English ace cemented his spot in the Arsenal starting XI – with the team winning all six of the matches that he played in.
Holding was called up to England under-21 squad earlier this year and he made the squad for the Toulon Tournament.
He was also selected for the Three Lions squad for the 2017 European Under-21 Championships in Poland.
