It might not seem to be such a big deal from the outside, but for Wanderers fans, this news is huge.
Wanderers haven’t bought a player for over three years, when Neil Lennon paid a nominal fee to sign Filip Twardzik from Celtic FC.
So who is Josh Magennis?
Magennis spent a few years playing in the SPL with Aberdeen and Kilmarnock from 2010 to 2016.
In 2016, Charlton Athletic brought him back to England. In two seasons at The Valley, Magennis has scored 20 goals in 88 games.
Magennis has also played 38 times for Northern Ireland, scoring four goals.
Upon his arrival, Magennis told Wanderers’ official site:
“It’s a massive move for myself and when I found out about the club’s initial interest, I was itching to get here.
”I’m absolutely delighted to be a Bolton Wanderers player though and hopefully we can make this season a successful one.”
Welcome to Bolton Wanderers, Josh!
