Bolton Wanderers have signed Darren Pratley from Swansea City, with the midfielder signing a four-year contract with the club.

During his five years with Swansea, the 26-year-old scored 31 goals and made 199 appearances. His final game at the Welsh team was their play-off final win over Reading at Wembley Stadium.

Bolton football manager Owen Coyle said: "We're delighted to have Darren here. A number clubs were interested in him and we are pleased to have secured his services.

"He's an exciting player, who has the right character to blend into our squad."

Coyle also described Pratley as a good addition for the team, who are looking to progress further in the forthcoming Premier League season.

Bolton may soon be able to call upon the services of defender Sam Ricketts, after he confirmed that he is making steady progress in his bid to return to full fitness.
