Bolton Wanderers have added to their midfield ranks with the addition of former Newport County midfielder, Josh Sheehan.

The Welsh international has signed a two year deal.

Sheehan began his career with Swansea City & had two loan stints at Yeovil Town before making the move to Newport in 2016 (initially on loan). He’s mainly played his entire career at League Two level, though did make 13 appearances in League One during his time at Yeovil.

Sheehan joins an already fairly large contingent of Welsh players at Bolton & has played twice for the national team after making his debut last November. Last week, he was named in the PFA League Two team of the year alongside his new teammates Ricardo Santos and Eoin Doyle.

Upon his arrival, Sheehan told the official site:

“I’m delighted to sign for such a big club with the ambitions they have,” the midfielder told

“That’s one of the reasons why I joined. I want to be part of the journey they are on and get Bolton Wanderers back to where they belong.

“When speaking with the manager he expressed his desire to sign me and told me his ambitions, and that really attracted me to be part of it.

“Also his style of football and the way he wants to play suits me so I feel it’s a good match.

“I can’t wait to play in front of the Bolton Wanderers fans. Even before it was announced I had loads of messages from them! I think this just shows the size of the fan base at this club.”

Welcome Josh!
