“I’m just buzzing to get the move done,” he said. “It’s been a stressful couple of days, but it’s an absolute dream to get it finally get it over the line.

“To have the opportunity to play Championship football for a massive club like Bolton Wanderers is what I’ve dreamt of and I can’t wait to get stuck in and learn from the other lads to hopefully do well for the club.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead – I can’t wait to learn from the manager and his staff as I look to improve as much as I can.”

He continued: “It’s a step up in level, but I’m willing and determined to improve my game and make myself a better player.”

Doidge also offered up an overview of himself as a player for the Bolton faithful, with him adding, “I’m a striker who likes to play off the shoulder, but at the same time I enjoy playing off the diag and holding the ball up.

“I’m someone who works really hard for the team - defensively, I feel like I can contribute too, but I’m ultimately a striker that has scored a lot of goals recently so my confidence is sky high which I’ll be looking to take into my Bolton Wanderers career.”
