Manager speaks following confirmation of Liam Feeney's permanent deal at Bolton Wanderers

Dougie Freedman says Liam Feeney can add an extra dimension to Wanderers’ attacking play, after tying up a permanent deal for the winger.

Feeney, 27, will join up with Wanderers on a free transfer ahead of pre-season, with his contract at Millwall set to expire this summer.

And after proving a hit with the Bolton fans during a brief loan spell last season, Freedman has now moved to add the pacey wide man to his squad.

“Liam is someone who has been on our radar for some time, even prior to his loan spell with us,” Freedman told bwfc.co.uk. “His pace is obviously his main asset, but he is also the right character for our group.

“He gives us another option. He’s quick and direct and that’s something that maybe we haven’t had recently. In the Championship you need options.

“There was a bit of competition for his signature, and Liam wanted to come and play for Bolton Wanderers.

“He’s at the right age and has his best football ahead of him. He’s an exciting player and we’re happy to have him with us.”
