According to the Press Association journalist Nick Mashiter on twitter, Bolton Wanderers have joined the race to sign Barnsley striker, Tom Bradshaw.

So who is Tom Bradshaw?

Well, the 25 year old forward started his career with Welsh side Aberystwyth Town Football Club, before moving to Shrewsbury Town in 2009.

Bradshaw spent five years with The Shrews, scoring 17 goals in 97 games. After their relegation to League Two, Bradshaw moved to Walsall for £50,000 in 2014.

In two seasons with The Saddlers, Bradshaw scored a very impressive 40 goals in 86 games, which prompted attention from other clubs.

During this time, Bradshaw made his international debut for Wales in March 2016, coming on as a substitute in a 1-0 defeat to Ukraine. The forward missed out on Wales’ Euro 2016 squad due to injury & currently has three caps to his name.

As Walsall failed to gain promotion to The Championship, Bradshaw moved to Barnsley in July 2016. In two years at Oakwell, Bradshaw has scored 17 goals in 88 games.

With Bradshaw set to command a fee, I think it’s unlikely that Wanderers will sign him. But we’ll see.

Marc Iles of The Bolton News has previously stated that Wanderers’ main striking target is a current Championship player.
