Walford had a playing career spanning twelve years and played for both Tottenham Hotspur and bitter North London rivals Arsenal, before moving into coaching, most notably with Celtic from 2000 to 2005, and Aston Villa from 2006 to 2010, before becoming assistant manager at Sunderland, spending three years at the Stadium of Light.

The 57-year-old’s most recent role was as a coach for the Republic of Ireland, and the Trotters’ boss Neil Lennon confirmed during a press conference that his former coach at Leicester City is set to become his new assistant manager.

Lennon said of the upcoming addition “Steve has a wealth of experience and that will be invaluable to me. I worked with him under Martin O’Neill and know his qualities as a coach.”

This news follows on from Bolton Wanderers picking up their first win in eleven games last Saturday, after a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers currently sit in 17th position in the Sky Bet Championship, having won once, drawn three times and lost twice.

The Trotters face Carlos Carvahal’s Sheffield Wednesday at the Macron Stadium on Tuesday night, in a game that both teams will be desperate to pick up three points and really help kickstart their campaign.
