Max Clayton Discusses His Move to Bolton

He took the long way to get here, but everyone at Bolton is very pleased with the lad

Following his fantastic performance in the home 3-1 victory over local rivals Wigan Athletic, 20 year old Bolton Wanderers starlet Max Clayton has been discussing his complicated journey to the Macron Stadium which took him from Crewe Alexandra, via Everton, Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and including a trip to Denmark with FC Midtjylland.

In conversation with the Bolton Evening News, Clayton said of the interest from the Danish club:

"I did end up there"

"That wasn't a nice trip. It's a funny place but I met some nice people. I don't want to go back, though."

Struggling with fitness following a broken ankle suffered whilst at Crewe, Clayton took up trial offers with Everton, Sunderland and Wolves, although a deal could not be struck partially due to his former club's insistence on a large compensation package.

Wanderers, and then-manager Dougie Freedman, struck a deal to bring the striker to Bolton, and Clayton has been delighted with the move ever since.

He said:

"Since I have been here I've done everything they've asked of me, put some weight on, got fitter, stronger and the staff have been so good,

I hope they are taking me on to the next level."

Us too lad.
