Adam Le Fondre has joined Sydney FC from Championship side Bolton Wanderers, as confirmed by the BBC.

The 31-year-old left the Trotters on Tuesday to complete his move to Australia.

Sydney FC, who are managed by former Wolves, Leicester City and Walsall manager Steve Corica, won the A-League last season. They are the home of former Oldham Athletic, Burnley and Leyton Orient goalkeeper Alex Cisak.

Le Fondre will be missed by Bolton Wanderers fans. The experienced striker chipped in with some vital goals that helped Phil Parkinson’s side stay in the Championship last season.

He forward started his career at his local side Stockport County and burst onto the scene as a youngster for the Hatters in League Two. Le Fondre earned himself a move to Rochdale in 2007 and he spent three years with them in the fourth tier and scored 42 goals.

Rotherham United then swooped to sign him in 2010 and he was prolific for the Millers. Le Fondre managed 58 goals in 105 games for them which resulted in Reading signing him in 2011. He spent three years with the Royals, including a season in the Premier League, before going onto have spells at Cardiff City, Wolves, Wigan Athletic and now Bolton Wanderers.
