English side Bolton Wanderers have announced the signing of Nigerian international Chinedu Obasi on a short-term deal. Obasi, 31 has been trialling at the Championship side for about a month now and is deemed to have sufficiently proved his fitness, enough to be handed a deal till the end of the current football season.
The Trotters confirmed the deal in a statement on the club’s website on Saturday evening.
“Bolton Wanderers are pleased to confirm the signing of Chinedu Obasi on a short-term deal until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.
“The 31-year-old was last on the books of Swedish side AIK, and completes his move to Macron Stadium following a successful trial period,” added the club statement.
Obasi who has been unlucky with injuries in his footballing career has represented Nigeria at FIFA Under-17, Under-20 and Senior World Cup tournaments between 2003 and 2010.
He left Swedish side AIK at the end of 2017 and Bolton manager Phil Parkinson has handed a lifeline to the talented attacker who can play on either flanks or as a subordinate striker.
He joins Sammy Ameobi, younger brother of former Nigerian international Shola Ameobi at the Macron Stadium.
