Bolton Wanderers have made their third signing of the Summer for the first team - with the arrival of Liverpool and Northern Ireland youngster Conor Bradley on a season long loan.
✍️ We are delighted to announce the signing of @NorthernIreland international defender Conor Bradley on a season-long loan from @LFC.— Bolton Wanderers (@OfficialBWFC) June 21, 2022
Welcome to Bolton, Conor! ⚪️#BWFC
The 18 year old is a promising prospect at Anfield, having played five times in the club, including a brief appearance in the Champions League in a win against AC Milan at the San Siro last season.
Bradley made his debut for Northern Ireland last year & has gone on to play eight times for his country, an impressive feat for someone his age.
Ian Evatt told the official site after the move was confirmed:
“This is another deal we are really pleased to get done with a top Premier League club and thanks to Liverpool for allowing Bradley to spend the season with us.
“Conor was a target for us in January. It wasn’t achievable then because Liverpool wanted him for their first team but they’ve trusted us to be the next phase of his development and, again, that’s a huge feather in our cap.
“He has made a superb start to his career for club and country and we are looking forward to working with him next season.
“He has the opportunity here to become a key member of the first team in a position we have been looking to strengthen.
“It’s an exciting acquisition which again shows the club is heading in the right direction and we really hope Conor has a successful and enjoyable time with us.
“I believe he’s going to be a top, top player, so it’s great for us.”
Bradley will link-up with the squad when they return from their pre-season training camp in Portgual.
