As reported this morning by Charlie Watts, Hamburg winger and England U20 international Xavier Amaechi has signed for Bolton Wanderers on a six month loan deal.

Upon his arrival, Amaechi told the official site:

“I’m looking forward to getting started with the boys. Hopefully I can start pre-season well and then look forward to the start of the season.

“I had contact with the gaffer a few weeks before pre-season and he told me that his plans were to have a good season in League One and hopefully get back to the Championship.

“The manager was really positive and ambitious and that came across really well when I spoke to him.

“I want to get in a good rhythm and help the team progress.”

Predominantly a right winger though can also play on the left, Amaechi has been with Hamburg since 2019, who picked him up for £2 million from Arsenal’s academy.

Amaechi has just spent the last few months on loan with Bundesliga 2 side Karlsruher SC, scoring twice in eleven games across all competitions.

Amaechi has played internationally with England & made his debut for the U20 side last year, scoring in a 2-0 win against Wales.

Welcome Xavier!
