What the Jay Spearing signing means for Bolton

With Spearing's signing, one of Bolton's central midfield spots is almost certainly locked up but it raises questions about the rest of the team.

About 2,500 Wanderers supporters travelled to Turf Moor to witness opening day against Burnley, chanting "we want our Spearing back." The players and manager both heard the cry with the club captain and boss making their voices heard after the match.

This is what you need to know about Andre Moritz

One of the major issues with supporting a team that plays in the Championship is the inability to watch opposition on a regular basis. As such, it becomes very difficult to form an opinion on players not in Bolton shirts. So, we asked some questions.

Bolton Wanderers sign Andre Moritz

Bolton Wanderers have just confirmed the news that broke late last night (or very early this morning, depending on how you look at it). The Trotters have officially completed the signing of Brazilian attacking midfielder Andre Moritz on a free.

In the wee hours of Thursday morning, the Mirror released a new report claiming that Bolton Wanderers were "ready to make a £1 million move" for DR Congo striker Jeremy Bokila. Let's just say that this is nowhere near as straightforward as it sounds.

Moritz still in Bolton sights after denying Celtic

Dougie Freedman had been looking at Moritz as an attacking midfielder to fill the gap left by Mark Davies' extended injury absence. Chris Eagles can play in that position for Wanderers but Dougie Freedman feels that the winger's ability is wasted.

Beckford deal done: minimal fee, incentive based

Wanderers will pay a relatively small, undisclosed up-front fee to Leicester City for Jermaine Beckford and the fee could (and probably will) rise based on a number of performance incentives.

Andre Moritz enters Trotters talks, no deal yet

Yesterday, rumors emerged that Bolton would be signing a new, mystery player not named Beckford. The player, not named, was currently in England and Wanderers had shown interest before. The smart money was on former Crystal Palace man, Andre Moritz.

Wanderers apparently eye Icelandic winger

Reports suggest that Bolton could well be interested in 22 year old Icelandic international Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson. A current member of the AZ Alkmaar first team, he has made 84 appearances, scoring six goals for the dutch side.

Beckford on the verge

Bolton Wanderers appear now to be on the verge of landing the 29 year old, former Leeds hitman on a free after it appears Beckford and Leicester have agreed a settlement on the contract. The signing appears imminent.

Dougie looking at former Palace midfielder Moritz

Bolton target Andre Moritz can play on the wings, he is first and foremost an attacking midfielder. He slots into the number 10 role, playing right behind the strikers. He is known to have an eye for the through ball and is an asset on set pieces.

Bolton priced out of Jay Spearing move

Earlier in the day, Dougie Freedman hosted an open question-and-answer session (as he has done over the last month or so) and the fans were very eager to learn more about the Jay Spearing situation.

Jay Spearing has not been contacted by Blackburn

Do Bolton Wanderers need Jay Spearing?

With the emergence of a report that named a £1.5m price tag for Jay Spearing, the calls rang out from Bolton fans, prompting questions about why it was Rovers and not Wanderers making the deal. What if the Trotters no longer need Jay Spearing?
