Phil Parkinson is the new manager of Bolton Wanderers, signing a two year deal to take over at the Macron Stadium.

He will hold a press conference at midday today.

Earlier in the week his now former club Bradford City had released a statement saying Parkinson was planning for the coming season with the Bantams, but now that is very much not the case.

Parkinson will be joined by his assistant Steve Parkin, and there are reports much of his backroom staff from Valley Parade will join him.

The Chorley man spectacularly took the West Yorkshire club to the League Cup final in 2013 and beat Chelsea away in the FA Cup last January, as well as winning promotion from League Two during his time there. He had been the fifth longest serving manager in English football.

He has a promotion from League One on his CV, taking Colchester United up automatically in 2006.
