Bolton Wanderers have completed the permanent signing of midfielder Kieran Lee, the League Two club have confirmed.
Lee had been a free agent since leaving Sheffield Wednesday in the summer, having spent the previous eight seasons at Hillsborough, making over 200 appearances in all competitions for the Owls.
The midfielder had been training with Ian Evatt’s side for some time with the view to securing a deal, and both parties now look to have come to agreement that suits both club and player.
It was announced by Bolton on Friday night that Lee has put pen to paper on an 18 month contract with the Trotters, effectively securing his future at The University of Bolton Stadium until the end of next season.
Perhaps not surprisingly given the level of ability and experience Lee has previously shown he possesses, plenty of Bolton fans appeared delighted as they took to Twitter to react to news of their club’s latest recruit.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Wanderers supporters had to say about Lee’s signing.
Huge club. Mint signing for this level. Hope we can keep him fit 🤞🏼
