Bolton Wanderers have signed Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder James Henry on loan until January, the club’s official website has confirmed.
The player, who has played just 64 minutes for Wolves in the Championship this season, has a wealth of experience throughout the Football League, with stints at Reading, Bournemouth (loan), Norwich (loan) and Millwall before he signed for Wolves after a successful loan spell.
At 27-years-old, Henry is in the prime of his career, and has previously represented both Scotland and England at youth international level.
He joins a Bolton side currently sitting pretty at the top of the League One table following their drop to that level after a woeful campaign last season.
Wide midfield is probably the area that Phil Parkinson had identified before Deadline Day as the position they needed to strengthen, with only Chris Taylor signed onto the club. He arrived from Blackburn earlier in the window, so Henry will have to settle in quickly to help Bolton keep up the pace.
The Trotters are in action at home to Southend on Saturday, and Henry will likely come in for central midfielder Liam Trotter, who played out of position on the right flank for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Charlton.
Bolton fans, what do you think? Will signing Henry make the difference and help you gain promotion to the Premeier League this season? Let us know below!
