Who Is The Money Man for Bolton?


It might be a pub quiz question in the future. Actually, it probably won’t, but still…

Josh Magennis is nearly a Wanderer. While the signing hasn’t been officially confirmed, Phil Parkinson has said it was close, while Charlton boss Lee Bowyer has said he cannot see the Northern Ireland international being anywhere other than at our place this season.

It’s a modest fee – potentially as low as £200,000 say the Bolton News, but it’ll the first fee since Filip Twardzik came through the door in 2015, and Magennis would go some way to make less of an impact than the Czech youngster.

He does sound like a Typical Phil Parkinson Striker™ though. His goalscoring records are hardly prolific, but in the last three seasons, he has hit double figures for firstly Aberdeen and latterly Charlton. Some Addicks fans have noted his target man traits though, which will undoubtedly have attracted Parkinson to him, not just this summer, but also when interest was lodged back in January.

So don’t expect a lot of goals. Do expect someone who at least tries and may even be some sort of replacement for Gary Madine.
