Officially official: Conor Wilkinson becomes Bolton's fifth signing, coming from Millwall

Tom Dulat

We're two days into the transfer window now and Bolton Wanderers are busy once more. The club has just announced their fourth signing of the window, officially bringing in young striker Conor Wilkinson from Millwall. The Wilkinson signing became news in the week after the end of the season when reports emerged about him signing alongside Hayden White but the club has now made the news public.

The young striker has officially signed a three year deal with Bolton Wanderers.

He is Bolton's fifth singing this summer, following in the footsteps of Marc Tierney, Hayden White, Alex Baptiste, and Rob Hall.

Wilkinson is an Ireland youth international with the country's U19s. During his time at Millwall, his club was approached by Portuguese side Benfica, offering to take the young striker on trial but the offer was rejected. Wilkinson, 18, came through Millwall's academy and featured for his former club's U21s on a number of occasions last season. He scored six times in the first half of the season and made the bench for the senior side during Millwall's FA Cup run last season, which took them to the competition's semi-finals.

Wilkinson was offered a pro contract at Millwall but rejected it in order to come to Bolton. Compensation talks between the two clubs are ongoing and if nothing is agreed upon (like in the Hayden White case), the talks will move to a tribunal (like in the Rob Hall case).
