Done Deal: Whites Capture Amos

New, comment

Some good news for once.

It's not all to often that us Bolton Wanderers supporters get exactly what we wish for when it comes to transfers, and even when it does, like in the case of the Jay Spearing signing, they often don't exactly go to plan.

But with any luck, things may just fare a little different this time, as Bolton have secured top transfer target Ben Amos.

With Adam Bogdan's transfer to Liverpool being officially confirmed a few weeks back now, Wanderers wasted little time in bringing back the former Manchester United goalkeeper, who was released by the Red Devils this summer, to replace the departing goalkeeper.

Amos spent 14 years at Old Trafford as he climbed up through all the youth teams until he was firmly a member of the first team squad, albeit far down in the pecking order.

The 6ft3" 'keeper returns to the Macron Stadium on a free transfer, having signed a four year deal. Which is certainly a great bit of business from the club.

Amos impressed on his loan spell at the Macron last season, initially brought in to provide cover due to Adam Bogdan's injury, he soon found himself thrown into the deep end when he replaced the injured Andy Lonergan and immediately had to face a penalty, against Nottingham Forest.

Not many players came away from the City Ground that day with much pride left in tact, but Amos certainly looked decent in his brief outing. He'd go on to make a further eight appearances for Wanderers, and only conceded six goals in those games, a minor miracle when you consider the defence in front of him.

The capture of Amos finally brings some good news to Bolton Wanderers, in terms of transfers, which has been considerably lacking up until this point.
