Manager Sam Allardyce has been surprised Warhurst has not found a club since leaving the Reebok Stadium and has brought the utility player again to strengthen his squad.
"I can't believe he hasn't got fixed up with a club," said Allardyce.
"However, if he stays fit he'll be a fantastic asset to the club."
Meanwhile, Allardyce will run the rule over young Icelandic international striker Veigar Gunnarsson.
Gunnarsson has been recommended to Bolton by former defender Gudni Bergsson, who is now
scouting for Wanderers after moving back to his homeland.
Gunnarsson has scored seven goals in 12 games for KR Reykjavik and will be out
of contract when Iceland's domestic league ends next month.
