The Bolton News reports that Accrington Stanley were also interested in signing Tutte but Bolton Wanderers snuck in to complete a deal for the midfielder ahead of them.

Upon the announcement of the deal, Tutte expressed his delight at the move. He said he hopes to help his new side make a return to League One after their relegation last campaign. He said:

“I’m buzzing and over the moon to sign for such a big club like this and I can’t wait to get started. I got to know the lads when I was in training earlier in the summer and I get on with every single one of them.

“I’ve been promoted from this league before and I know what it takes to succeed at this level. This group of players are capable of that, 100%!”
