Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt has confirmed that there is an option for Luton Town to recall defender Peter Kioso from his loan spell in January but only by a certain date.

The Hatters man moved to the University of Bolton Stadium on a season-long loan as the final Wanderers signing of the summer transfer window.

Since moving to Wanderers, the 21-year-old has been an ever present in the side at right wing-back.

He has played 12 times in all competitions so far for Bolton and scored twice, including the winner in the victory over Scunthorpe United in midweek.

Earlier this month, Luton boss Nathan Jones admitted that Kioso could be recalled from his loan spell owing to injuries at the Championship club, while his form at the Trotters has also led to the questions being raised that he could head back to Kenilworth Road.

Speaking earlier this month, Evatt confirmed he had not been contacted by Luton concerning a potential recall for Kioso.

And asked ahead of tomorrow's clash against Southend United, Evatt confirmed there is a recall option on Kioso which Luton can exercise, but only to a certain cut off point.

But Evatt says the loan is for the season as far as Wanderers are concerned and believes Kioso is helping to develop as a player during his time at the UniBol.

Evatt said: “In January, yes, there is a recall option, but only to a certain cut off date.

"It’s a season-long as far as we’re concerned and Peter in benefiting from playing every week and we are helping develop him as a player.

"We think Peter’s a very very good player, he’s a wonderful human being as well and we’d like to keep him here."
