Bolton Wanderers have completed the signing of 29-year old striker Jermaine Beckford from Leicester City for an undisclosed fee.
The striker has joined on a two-year deal and is reunited with Dougie Freedman who he played alongside with at Leeds United in the 2007/08 season. Beckford spent last season on loan at Huddersfield Town, making 22 appearances in total for the Terriers.
“We have worked very hard in order to bring Jermaine to the club; it has been a long winded signing. Bolton manager Dougie Freedman said.
“It has been out in the press for the last few weeks but Jermaine is someone I know and I have previously played alongside him so I know his character.
“He is a goal scorer and in certain games that last season we dominated we weren’t clinical enough and that is what Jermaine brings.”
