As announced by site HITC sport and the man himself, Bolton Wanderers have signed right back Reece Wabara until the end of the season.

Reece Wabara, 25, began his youth career with Walsall, before moving on to Manchester City. The full back only made one appearance for City, with his time at the club spent out on loan at several clubs: Ipswich Town, Oldham Athletic, Blackpool and Doncaster Rovers.

Wabara would eventually leave City on a permanent basis in 2014 to join Doncaster Rovers. After only one season at the Keepmoat and because of Doncaster's relegation to League One, Wabara moved to Barnsley on a free transfer in August 2015.

Six months later, Wabara moved to Wigan Athletic, helping the Latics gain promotion back to the Championship as League One Champions. For his efforts, Wabara was named in the 2015/2016 PFA League One Team of the year.

Wabara left Wigan in the Summer, and was set to join Leeds United until Gary Monk cancelled the deal.

With over 100 appearances in English football to his name, as well as caps for England's U19 and U20 team, Wabara is well experienced and should be considered a great signing for Wanderers.

Do this mean Phil Parkinson switches back to a 4-2-3-1 formation?
