Welcome Back, Dan!

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to announce the return of Dan Nlundulu on a three-year contract.

The dynamic forward spent the second half of the season on loan with the Whites and made a positive impact for Ian Evatt’s men on the charge to the League One Play-Offs.

Nlundulu now becomes a Wanderer on a permanent basis, moving from Southampton where he has been since 2013 and made 12 Premier League appearances.

The 24-year-old commits his future to the Club until the summer of 2026 and will be looking to push on once again to help Wanderers go one step further next campaign.

And Nlundulu felt like there was only one place for him to be ahead of the new season.

Dan said: “I’m really looking forward to being back. I enjoyed my loan spell and I feel at home here.

“We initially had the conversation in the January transfer window and there was only one place I wanted to go and that was here. I’m happy that it is all done now.

“The way the fans have been has meant a lot to me and I want to pay them back now by performing.”

Manager Ian Evatt recruited Nlundulu in January on loan and showed faith in the forward in a number of decisive games on the Wanderers’ march to the Play-Offs.

And that trust from the boss is something which Nlundulu has revelled in so far.

“The gaffer is a big reason why I’m here. Football is all about confidence and the fact that I’ve got the manager backing me, that’s the best thing I can ask for. I’m thankful that he has put his belief in me, and I’ll be trying my hardest to pay him back.

“I feel like there is unfinished business here and there is healthy competition within the squad, so we all need to work together to get the Club where it needs to be.

“I’m excited to get a full pre-season under my belt and I can’t wait to get started now.”
