Karl Henry




Date of birth








Bolton Wanderers signed experienced midfielder Karl Henry on a deal until the end of the season in September 2017.

The 34-year-old, who was last on the books of Queens Park Rangers, has made over 500 appearances during a career which has spanned almost two decades, including time spent in the Premier League.

Starting out with Stoke City after coming up through their youth ranks, the Wolverhampton-born midfielder played in over a century of games for the Potters in all competitions during a seven-year stay at the Britannia Stadium.
Moving to his hometown club of Wolves in 2006 meanwhile, he became a stalwart for the Molineux outfit, with 262 of his 272 appearances for them coming from starting berths.
Departing the Midlands side in 2013, he joined QPR and remained at Loftus Road until this summer, figuring on 118 occasions for the R's.
Following a lengthy spell training with Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion, he has made Wanderers his fourth permanent club by agreeing a contract until the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign.

Handed his Whites debut less than 24 hours after joining the club away at Bristol City, Henry made an immediate impact at Macron Stadium with his arrival quickly followed by an upturn in performances.

Endearing himself to the club's supporters, he quickly cemented his place in Phil Parkinson's starting XI and helped the Trotters clinch their first league victory of the season when making his home debut against Sheffield Wednesday.
