Martin Petrov has officially left Bolton Wanderers. This morning we told you about his medical at Barcelona-based club Espanyol and that things had gone to plan. Well, the former Bolton Wanderers, Atletico Madrid, Wolfsburg, and Manchester City winger is now officially an Espanyol player, confirmed on the club's official website. There he is reunited with manager Javier Aguirre, who he played for during his time at Atletico Madrid.
Petrov struggled to find a place in the Bolton Wanderers side this season, playing in only 14 of Bolton's 26 league games and only starting in 6 of those matches. He managed three goals and three assists for the Trotters but ultimately it was not enough for him to cement a spot in the starting lineup.
The Bulgarian winger signs for Espanyol for six months, meaning that his contract is up at the end of the season. He will immediately practice with his new teammates before being presented by the club at the training facilities later in the day.
He was originally brought to the club by Owen Coyle after being released by Manchester City.
Best of luck, Martin, and thanks for all of those whipped crosses.
