As reported by Romanian journalist Emanuel Roşu, Bolton Wanderers winger is set to move to Serie B side, Cremonese.

The 21 year old is scheduled to have a medical with the Italian side tomorrow, bringing an end to his seven year stint with Wanderers.

Roşu’s article on his site states:

“Dennis Politic (21 years old) leaves England after 9 years.

The 3-year-old kid (2012-2015) spent at Manchester United’s academy is set to be officially unveiled as a Cremonese player this week. Politics can play both in the strips and in the attack. The footballer spent his last months in Port Vale, in the English 4th League (League Two), where he had been loaned by Bolton, a club now in the 3rd League (League One).

Born in Brasov, Politic has grown up in Bolton Wanderers’ academy since 2015 and has been a member of the big team since 2018. His progress has been blocked by a torn ligament he suffered in August 2020, when his confidence that he can catching the starting 11 was great, in the context of convincing evolutions in the preseason and in the beginning of the championship. Politic, he still had a contract with Bolton until the end of June. Even though he had an extension offer on the table, the Romanian decided not to sign.

He will play for promotion to Serie A with his colleagues from Cremonese.”

Cremonese are currently 4th in Serie B, just three points behind leaders Pisa. So Politic could well be playing at the San Siro against Inter and Milan & Allianz stadium against Juventus next season. Wild.

It makes sense why Dennis turned down a year extension on his current Wanderers deal.

The winger played thirty games for Bolton, scoring five times. Who knows how integral he would have been to Ian Evatt’s plans had he not suffered that season ending injury in pre-season eighteen months ago.

That sadly put a stop to his Wanderers career & being so far down the pecking order upon his return, it was understandable that he was loaned out to Port Vale to get some game time.

Despite not starting many games, he still managed five goals and four assists in sixteen games.

Rosu has confirmed that Wanderers will indeed receive a fee - “around £50k and % from future sale involved”

Everyone at LOV wishes Dennis the best of luck with the rest of his career!
