Bolton showing some pre-season promise

Ivan Klasnic has made Bolton his permanent home

Bolton have completed the signing of Ivan Klasnic on a free, two-year contract.

Klasnic becomes boss Owen Coyle’s fourth signing of the summer after Martin Petrov, Robbie Blake and Marcos Alonso. The Croatian striker mutually agreed to terminate his contract with Nantes last week and has now moved back to the club where he played on loan last year and scored eight goals from 27 appearances in the process.

The signing will please Owen Coyle who said at the start of the summer that he would love to take Klasnic back and having secured some valuable additions already, is shaping up for a good first full season in charge. Coyle said: “I’m absolutely delighted to get Ivan back. He is a proven goalscorer and someone who has played at the top-level. Last year he was obviously on loan but I’m now thrilled that he is our player for the next two years. He was desperate to come back and join us and I’m delighted that we have to come to an agreement where everybody is happy. It’s a terrific piece of business because if we wanted to buy him last year then it would have cost £2mAlong with Martin, Robbie and Marcos we have strengthened our squad with real quality players.”
