Bolton Wanderers were delighted to confirm the signing of Josh Magennis from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee on July 30, 2018.

The striker moved to the club on a two-year deal with the Whites having a long-held interest in the Northern Ireland international.

Starting his senior career with Cardiff City, the 27-year-old spent time on loan with Grimsby Town before moving north of the border to sign for Aberdeen in July 2010.

Joining Kilmarnock in July 2014 following a temporary stint with St Mirren, he scored 20 goals in his two seasons at Rugby Park.

Boasting nearly 40 international caps, Magennis scored his first goal for his country in Northern Ireland’s 3-1 victory over Greece to book their place for Euro 2016 before featuring three times at the finals in France.

Signing for Charlton in August 2016 following the tournament, he recorded double figures in both of his campaigns at The Valley and linked up with Bolton prior to the 2018/19 campaign.
