Bolton Wanderers have announced the signing of former Nottingham Forest defender Jack Hobbs on a free transfer.
In a statement on the Bolton Wanderers website, the Trotters confirmed the signing of the 29-year-old on a one-year contract.
The Championship veteran had been on trial at the Macron Stadium during preseason following the end of his contract at Nottingham Forest.
Hobbs stated: “I’m delighted to get the deal over the line. Obviously I’ve been up here with the team training for a few weeks now and to have agreed a year-long contract is fantastic. I just can’t wait to get started now.”
Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson stated: “I’m really pleased that we have signed Jack.
“He’s been with us through pre-season and has not only shown what a good player he is, but also what a good character he has.”
Hobbs started his career coming through the youth set up at Lincoln City, before joining Premier League giants Liverpool where he went on to make two first team appearances.
The defender has played in England’s second division for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Leicester City, Hull City and Nottingham Forest, and will be hoping to help his new side improve on last season’s 21st place finish.
Having only made ten league appearances in his last two season, Jack Hobbs may take some time before he starts for the Trotters.
But, once back playing regular first team football, the defender could turn out to be a strong addition to the Bolton Wanderers side.
Phil Parkinson will certainly be hoping to improve on last season’s performances, and work their way up the table, with the help of new signing Jack Hobbs.
