Saint Robinson Joins Bolton

Saint Robinson Joins Bolton

Bolton were linked with a couple of players, and some exits, but it was basically a quiet day at the Reebok on deadline day.

The 'emergency loan' window closed at 5pm on Thursday with this closing with Dougie Freedman securing the services of Andy Robinson on loan from Southampton.

Speaking about the signing Freedman said: 'We've been looking at him for a while now. He's a good young player who has been brought up in a fantastic system.

'I've watched him play in the reserves for Southampton for some time now and we know all about him. He's a different type to some of the midfielders we've currently got.'

21-year-old midfielder Robinson should offer Bolton another options with him expected to come straight into the squad for the weekend meeting with Wigan Athletic, maybe into the starting XI instantly?

Chris Eagles' reported exit didn't happen though, nor did Lee Peltier's arrival from Leeds United with the defender eventually completing a move to Nottingham Forest that seemed dead in the water earlier in the week.

Mr Ecky sends his best to the Vital Bolton community, he's currently not well, he'll be back as soon as possible and in the meantime, he's got a staff writer to fill in for him.

If anyone has something to share in the meantime (this gives a genuine Bolton point of view from a Bolton fan!) feel free to fire an email through.

Please include your username so I can put that to it though.

I'm a bit concerned that Southampton have apparently written him off as surplus to requirements, but no doubt they have some talent down at St. Mary's these days. However, this is a great chance for the lad to show what he can do for us. DF has brought in some very good players on loan since he arrived (excluding Trotter!) I'm sure he'll at least be on the bench tomorrow and may get on the pitch at some stage, preferably when we are three up! Looking forward to seeing what he can do. Also glad to see that Dougie has apparently abandoned his belief, that a new signing has to train at Euxton for three months and undergo brainwashing into the system, before he gets in the team.
