Swansea City to Sign Ex-Bolton Wanderers Midfielder

Didn't they learn the lessons provided by Ngog?

It has been rumoured online that Swansea City are on the brink of signing former Bolton Wanderers midfielder Blerim Džemaili.

The 29 (!) year old Swiss midfielder is currently warming the bench at Turkish giants Galatasaray, having struggled to make an impact since moving from Italian side Napoli in 2014, indeed he has only featured 20 times in total for Galatasaray, netting just once.

The Swiss midfielder previously had a spell in the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers. However, a horrific knee injury restricted him to just one appearance for the Trotters during his time in England.

Wanderers sold him to Torino for a mere £1.5m, before he then moved on to Napoli following two seasons impressing with Parma in Serie A - his move to Turkey however has been less than successful.

Personally I'm amazed that he's 29, but then again he did leave Bolton back in 2008 I suppose. Good luck to him.
