Sky Bet League One side Bolton Wanderers have extended the loan of Wolves’ James Henry until the end of the season, the club’s website have announced.
Bolton Wanderers announced the news to their fans on their official twitter account this afternoon.
Initially joining the Lancashire side on transfer deadline day back in August, the winger made now gone on to make 21 appearances for Bolton during the first half of the campaign, scoring one goal. That goal a very important one as well, a 90+4 minute winner against fellow Sky Bet League One promotion hopefuls Scunthorpe United on New Years Eve.
Speaking to bwfc.co.uk after the deal was confirmed this afternoon, Trotters manager Phil Parkinson stated: “We’re very pleased to have extended the loan of James as we look to keep our squad as strong as possible heading into the second half of the season.”
Still retaining the number 24 jersey, James Henry is available for selection for this coming Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup third round clash with Crystal Palace at Macron Stadium.
With Bolton trying to get promoted from Sky Bet League One at the first time of asking this season, it is key that the Lancashire side can bring in some more additions for the rest of the campaign.
The winger joined Wolves from Millwall before the 2011-12 when the club were in League One. Henry arguably enjoyed his best spell that term, scoring ten goals in 34 appearances for Wolves in their promotion campaign.
With Bolton now in Sky Bet League One themselves, the extension of James Henry’s loan at the club could be vital to their promotion success due to his previous experience and abundant quality at that level.
