Midfielder links up with Wanderers on a short-term deal
Bolton Wanderers are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Jem Karacan on a month-long deal.
The 28-year-old was last on the books of Galatasaray in Turkey – a country which he has represented at various levels courtesy of his father’s heritage.
Born in Catford in London, Karacan started out on the books of Wimbledon in the nineties before joining Reading as a teenager where he turned professional in 2007.
Remaining at the Madejski Stadium for eight years, making nearly 180 appearances in all competitions for the club, he also scored 14 goals whilst figuring in the Premier League and Championship.
During his time with the Berkshire outfit, he spent time on loan with both AFC Bournemouth and Millwall, playing League One football with both sides.
After departing the Royals in 2015, he moved to Galatasaray while he also enjoyed a temporary stint with Bursaspor last year.
But after leaving the former by mutual consent in January, Karacan has now linked up with the Whites on a short-term deal.
