Championship striker in the frame for cut-price Bolton move

Tim Keeton

A bit of exciting news for Bolton fans as it appears the transfer window is in full swing for Dougie Freedman. The move is Dougie's second signing in his time in charge of Bolton Wanderers, with the first being Jacob Butterfield's loan move from Norwich City.

The new player, a striker, hopes to solve Bolton's finishing woes in the Championship. Bolton are very good at creating the chances they need to go ahead in games, it's putting them in the back of the net that has proved a major issue for the men in white.

The man in question is Barnsley's Craig Davies, a 26-year-old Wales forward who started his career at Manchester City before spending time at the likes of Oxford United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Brighton & Hove Albion, and a number of other teams. He settled down at Barnsley in 2011 and has made 52 appearances for the Tykes in that time, scoring a total of 19 goals in that stretch.

Davies would be a bargain signing and Dougie's first permanent transfer.

Craig Davies has six appearances for Wales since 2005 and has played for them at the U17, U19, and U21 levels. He knows the league and knows how to score goals. He scored a long-range goal against Bolton to level for Barnsley when the two clubs met in 2012.

According to the Bolton News, Leicester City and Leeds United are also in for him.
