Bolton Wanderers sign Adam Le Fondre on loan

Striker joins club from Cardiff City on deal until the end of the season

Bolton Wanderers have completed the signing of striker Adam Le Fondre on loan until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old joins the club from Cardiff City, having spent six months with the Bluebirds after a summer move to South Wales from Reading.

Le Fondre started his career at local side Stockport County before later enjoying stints with Rochdale and Rotherham United, while he was a member of the Reading side that won promotion to the Premier League in 2012.

The forward will wear the number nine shirt for the duration of his stay at Macron Stadium, but will be unable to feature in next week’s FA Cup fourth round reply against Liverpool having featured for Cardiff earlier in the competition.

Wanderers now await international clearance from the FA in order for Le Fondre to be eligible to make his debut.
