Bolton Wanderers are pleased to announce the arrival of James Weir at the University of Bolton Stadium on a one-year-deal.
The 23-year-old midfielder was last on the books of Hull City, while he also spent time on loan at Wigan Athletic in 2017.
Born and bred in Preston meanwhile, he started his youth career with his hometown club before joining Manchester United as a teenager and turning professional with the Red Devils in 2014.
He made one senior appearance at Old Trafford against Arsenal in February 2016 in a 3-2 Premier League win.
The former England Under-18 and Under-19 international goes straight into contention for Saturday’s Sky Bet League One opener against Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park.
