Antoni Sarcevic is the latest addition to Head Coach Ian Evatt’s squad after the Manchester-born midfielder signed a two-year deal with Bolton Wanderers.
The former Manchester City youth player turned down offers from several other clubs to commit his immediate future at the University of Bolton Stadium.
Sarcevic, 28, previously plied his trade with Plymouth Argyle, where he made 114 league appearances, scoring 18 goals, during a three-year spell at Home Park.
As top scorer for The Pilgrims last season, his 11 goals helped the club win promotion to Sky Bet League One and he was subsequently named as their Player Of The Year.
Formerly with Shrewsbury Town, Fleetwood Town, Chester and Crewe Alexandra, Sarcevic arrives at Wanderers following the recent acquisition of striker Eoin Doyle, who joined last week.
Speaking about his return to the North West, he said: “I’m delighted and over the moon to sign for this football club.
“The club speaks for itself. As soon as Bolton Wanderers comes knocking on the door it’s a massive plus.
“When I found out about the club’s interest it was a move I wanted to get done straight away.
“I’m a North West lad so I know all about the club. I’m proud to be associated with Bolton Wanderers and I can’t wait to get going.”
Wanderers’ Head Coach Ian Evatt added: “Antoni is an all action midfielder who can score and assist and I’m delighted that we have brought him on board.
“His record at this level is exceptional and his arrival is yet another statement signing for the club.
“We cannot wait to get started.”
