Manager delighted with Adam Le Fondre capture

Neil Lennon speaks following the confirmation of Adam Le Fondre's loan deal with Bolton Wanderers

Neil Lennon hopes Adam Le Fondre can keep up his impressive goal-scoring record during his loan spell at Bolton Wanderers.

Le Fondre, 28, penned a temporary deal at Macron Stadium for the remainder of the season, joining from fellow Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City.

“He’s got a great goal scoring record at every level,” the manager said. “Even in the premier league he had 12 and 17 for a team that got relegated, that speaks volumes to me about his goal scoring ability.

“He’s the type of player we need - I need a box player. The amount of chances that we create and don’t convert, I think Adam will benefit from that.” 

“Part of the attraction of coming here was to be around his family again.

“I think there was a bit of a disconnection when he was at Cardiff, so I think he will enjoy being back in the North West.

“Hopefully we’ll get the best out of him because he certainly has the ability to score goals.”

The club now require international clearance in order for Le Fondre to be eligible to make his first team debut.
