Gregus - Facilities are great here

Slovakian recruit impressed with the club's facilities

Midfielder Jan Gregus has expressed his delight after securing a loan move to the Wanderers, and he hopes to impress manager Dougie Freedman during his spell with the Whites.

The Slovakian Under-21 international put pen to paper on a 12-month loan deal from Czech Republic side Banik Ostrava on Friday.

The 21-year-old has begun to settle into life in England and the midfielder is now ready to get to work and continue his development with the Trotters.

“I am very happy to be at this club,” Gregus said. “It is a big club in England and there are some great players here so it is very good. 

“I came here in December for the first time and I spoke with the manager. He said that he had seen me in a match against Romania for the under-21 national team, so that was the first time that I knew that the manager was watching me. 

“I thought it was great because it was a match when all our team played well. Unfortunately we lost that match, but I was very happy with my own performance.  

“The manager has spoken to me since I have arrived about how he likes me as a player and I am very happy to be here. I have spent some time with the squad and they have been very welcoming and personally they have helped me settle into life here in England.

“I now want to try and get better every day while I am here. Bolton have some very good players and the training facilities are very good so it is great for my growth and development. 

“I tend to play as a defensive midfielder, but I can play in the midfield it depends on the manager. Some coaches choose to play me as a defensive midfielder while some choose to play me a bit more offensive, but I prefer to play more defensive. I like to get on the ball and pass it to my team-mates all the time so this is a position I like.”
