Keith Andrews signs for Bolton Wanderers
BOLTON Wanderers have signed midfielder Keith Andrews on a three-year deal.
The Republic of Ireland international – who scored 11 goals at Ipswich Town during a five-month loan spell last season – joins on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at West Brom.
Speaking about his latest recruit, manager Owen Coyle – whose side are back in the Championship following relegation from the top-flight – said: “We are pleased to have been able to bring in Keith early in the transfer window as there were a number of clubs interested in signing him.
“He is highly experienced both in domestic and international football and he will bring strength, competition and a goalscoring threat to our midfield.”
Having started last season out-of-favour at Blackburn Rovers, 31-year-old Andrews moved to West Brom following his loan spell at Portman Road. He made a total of 14 appearances for Roy Hodgson while at the Hawthorns, scoring Premier League goals against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sunderland.
