League One side Bolton Wanderers get an extra boost as they sign Andrew Taylor on a season long loan from Wigan Athletic.
The 30-year old player joined the club from Cardiff back in 2014 but garnered 27 appearances for Wigan in the 2014/15 campaign and played 23 games when he was shipped out on loan to Championship side Reading last term.
Taylor started his career at Middlesbrough and has played at Bradford and Watford on different loan spells until he joined Welsh side Cardiff in 2011. Since then, Taylor has featured in 114 games until he agreed to leave the club for Bolton. He becomes the seventh signing for the season.
The centre back would be joining former Rotherham player Lewis Buxton after the 32-year old moved to the club. Buxton started his career at Portsmouth and has played for Exeter City, Bournemouth, Stoke City and Sheffield Wednesday at various times.
On the other hand, Bolton lost one of their academy players Nathaniel ‘Nat’ Phillips as he moved to Premier League side Liverpool when he couldn’t get an extension of his deal. The player was set to move to America on a football scholarship until when Liverpool decided to step in and offer him a professional deal.
Phillips was at the club on trial at the end of July and the club feels he has done enough to secure a full time deal with the Merseyside club. the player would join the development squad where he is to work with Michael Beale and Neil Critchley at their Melwood training complex. The player is keen on making his mark in the premier league, and it is still surprising how Bolton found him not very helpful to their dream yet a bigger club Liverpool thought he was good enough.
