Championship side, Bolton Wanderers have confirmed that they have signed Nigerian striker Sola Ameobi on a short term deal.
Coach Neil Lennon had before now said he could not offer Ameobi a contract as his attributes are same with the other strikers already in the club’s books.
Ameobi who left Crystal Palace in the summer has had trials with a number of Championship clubs, most recently Charlton Athletic.
But now the Addicks’ Championship rivals Bolton have opted to hand the Nigeria international a short-term deal.
Ameobi, who spent 14 years as part of the first-team at Newcastle, will link up with another experienced hitman at the Macron in Emile Heskey.
