Bolton Wanderers are delighted to confirm that Ronan Darcy has signed a contract extension.
The midfielder, who joined the club’s Academy aged 8 before turning professional in the summer of 2020, has committed his future to the club until at least the summer of 2023.
Born in Ormskirk, Darcy made his first team debut coming off the bench during Wanderers’ final game of the 2018-19 season against Nottingham Forest.
He scored his first goal for Wanderers during an EFL Cup game against Rochdale in 2019 and netted his first league strike at Lincoln City later in the campaign.
Having made over 30 appearances for Wanderers in all competitions, he is now set to sign for a Norwegian club on loan until December to bolster his senior experience.
Darcy said: “I am delighted to have signed an extension here at Bolton Wanderers, the fans and everyone around me know how much this club means to me.
“Having been at the club since I was eight, to be offered the chance to extend my stay here was something I could not refuse. I cannot wait to see what the future holds because the club is only going in one direction and I’m so happy to be a part of that.
“But for now I need to get back out playing week in week out because it’s what’s right for me and hopefully the lads can have an enjoyable season for everyone to watch.
“It's been a bit of a rollercoaster couple of years for us all, but gaining promotion last season was something I want to continue to experience and be a part of.
“Hopefully, I can continue to develop and help the team rise through the leagues until we get to where we know we should be competing.
“I will give everything I have until we get there and look forward to the journey.”
Wanderers Manager Ian Evatt added: “We are pleased to secure the future of one of our brightest young talents.
“Ronan is developing all the time and has a big future with the club.”
