Wanderers confirm double loan swoop

Bolton Wanderers have bolstered their squad by landing Lincoln City’s Zack Elbouzedi and Ben Jackson from Huddersfield Town on loan until the end of the season.

Elbouzedi, 22, is an Irish winger who joined Lincoln City in January 2020 from Waterford.

He started his career at West Brom where he came through their youth system, before playing in Scotland for Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Elgin City.

He has also represented the Republic of Ireland at every youth level from under 15s through to under 21s and has played in six games for The Imps this season, netting two goals.

Stockport-born Jackson is a pacy left-sided defender who joined the Huddersfield Town Academy at the age of 14 in 2005.

The 19 year-old has recently had loan spells with Darlington and hometown club Stockport County, and has made three appearances for The Terriers this season.

Wanderers Manager Ian Evatt told bwfc.co.uk: “Zack is a player who I have monitored for a good length of time. Lincoln are currently flying at the moment and have some very good players in his position. As a result of their form, Zack has struggled for game time. He’s a player with electric pace, is a match winner and gives us more options in the forward area of the pitch.

“Ben has been doing well at Huddersfield and has already played in the Championship this season. He can play in a number of positions but left back is primarily his role, which gives us competition for Declan and others. He’s very quick and good with the ball.

“We are excited to have them both.”

Elbouzedi added: “Everybody knows the size of this club and I’m delighted to be here. Hopefully, I can come here, play some games and help the club to progress.

”I’m 22 now and I just want to play regular football. I’m really eager to get going for Bolton Wanderers.”

Jackson commented: “I’m at an age now where I want to be playing senior football on a regular basis. To be able to come to such a massive club in a good league and getting some games is very important to me. I’m excited to get out on the pitch and get some games.”
