‘Wish he was signing for us’ – Plenty of Bolton fans react as club’s former player completes transfer

Shrewsbury Town have completed the permanent signing of winger Josh Vela from Scottish Premiership side Hibernian on a two-and-a-half-year deal, the League One side have confirmed.

Vela had only joined the Edinburgh club in the summer transfer window – and made a total of just 14 appearances for the Scottish Premiership outfit – following his departure from Bolton Wanderers in the aftermath of their relegation from the Championship at the end of last season.

A graduate of Bolton’s academy, Vela had made a total of 170 appearances in all competitions for the Trotters, scoring 13 goals and helping them win promotion to the Championship from League One during the 2016/17 campaign.

Taking to Twitter as news broke about the latest turn in Vela’s career path, it seemed plenty of Bolton fans were split on that update, with some expressing the desire to see the 26-year-old in a Wanderers shirt again, while others appeared happier to see him head elsewhere.

Here, we take a look at what some of those Bolton supporters had to say.
