Following on last week’s internet rumours and Alan Nixon’s tweet, Bolton Wanderers have confirmed the signing of former Brentford, Birmingham City and Sheffield United striker, Clayton Donaldson.

The 34 year old striker has signed a one year deal, becoming Wanderers’ third summer signing.

The Jamaican international has clocked up more than 400 appearances over his career, scoring 144 goals.

Donaldson has also scored twice in ten games for Jamaica.

Clayton Donaldson has loads of experience, which could only be a positive thing for Connor Hall and the other youngsters at the club.

Upon his arrival, Donaldson told Wanderers’ official site:

“It feels great to have the move finally signed and sealed.

”I just cannot wait to get started. I spoke to the manager before I went away on holiday and I knew straight away that Bolton Wanderers was the club for me.

”I feel like I can bring experience to the team and goals - as a striker, you want to contribute to help the side to push on and do well in the league and I’m determined to do that here at Bolton.”

Parky added:

“We’re pleased to welcome Clayton to the club. You can never have enough strikers in your squad and he is a player who has a lot of Championship experience.

”We’re looking forward to working with him this year and although we still have a lot of work to do in terms of our squad building, Clayton is a very good addition to the team.”

Welcome to Bolton, Clayton!
