Stoke City winger Thibaud Verlinden looks back on his loan spell at Bolton Wanderers with fond memories, as per a report by The Bolton News.
The Belgian wide man spent the first half of this season on loan with the Trotters in League One and enjoyed playing regular first-team football.
Verlinden, who is 20 years old, made 17 appearances for Keith Hill’s side in all competitions and scored three goals.
He joined Stoke in the summer of 2015 having previously been on the books at Club Brugge and Standard Liege. He has since played 12 times for the Potters’ senior side and also been loaned out to German side St. Pauli in the past.
Verlinden has reflected on his spell at Bolton, as per the Bolton News: “Yes, I really did (enjoy it at Bolton). It was at the end of the window and I had decided that it was time for me to get regular game time. I felt that I was ready for it.”
“I really enjoyed it… I had a really good connection with the Bolton fans, a lot like I have with the Stoke fans.”
He added: “I like to attack, dribble, put crosses in the box and score really… and fans like that kind of player.”
