Bolton have signed striker Jamie Proctor from Bradford City, meaning Wanderers have made their third signing in the space of the week.

The 6ft 2in striker has signed a two year deal to link up with his former boss Phil Parkinson.

Proctor is from the North West, coming through the youth system at Preston. A move to Swansea in 2012 didn’t work out for him, not playing a single game in the half season in South Wales, and he went on to restart his career in the lower leagues.

After time at Crawley and Fleetwood, Proctor then joined Bradford on loan in January this year and made the deal permanent in February, although the contract only lasted until the end of the season.

That has worked out for Wanderers, as Proctor has chosen to follow Parkinson to the right side of the Pennines.

Proctor is a tall striker, who has been described as a striker who will run through brick walls. But his goalscoring record isn’t proflific, generally averaging just under a goal every four games. So let’s not expect him to be the 20-goal-a-season man, eh?

In other news, there are signs Darren Pratley could be off to Queen’s Park Rangers.

The Bolton News reports the London club made an official approach last week, and Pratley has been given the green light to speak to them. Pratley has two years left on his contract, and would be a substantial wage of the bill. Few Wanderers fans would miss him too.

  • It appears Christmas has come early this year. Three new players in one week and I’m sure Parky isn’t finished yet. Plus a good chance Pratley will leave this time. Hope Mavies is next in line. Also very pleased to see him signing big lads. If they have the talent to match, we may give a good showing in this league next term.
