Bolton Wanderers have taken Bulgarian international Ivan Bandalovski on trial.

Ivan Bandalovski, 30, began his career with Bulgarian side PFC Litex Lovech, and has had spells in the Netherlands with Feyenoord, Belgium with Oud-Heverlee Leuven and further spells in his homeland with Lokomotiv Sofia and CSKA Sofia.

Bandalovski is a free agent, having left Serbian side Partizan Belgrade last Summer.

Predominantly a right back, Bandalovski is comfortable anywhere across the back four.

Bandalovski has plenty of experience, having won titles in Bulgaria and Serbia, as well as clocking up playing time in the Europa League. The Bulgarian has also played sixteen times for his country, which included a game against England in 2011. England won 3-0.

Bandalovski will be tested this week by Phil Parkinson and his backroom staff in the hopes of earning a deal.

With both Lawrie Wilson and Lewis Buxton out injured, it's the perfect opportunity for Bandalovski to show he has what it takes to play in England.

So, do you think Bandalovski would be a great signing for Wanderers? Let us know in the comments box below.
