Bolton Wanderers complete signing of Millwall striker Bodvarsson

Millwall attacker Jón Daði Böðvarsson has joined League One side Bolton Wanderers on an 18-month contract.

The forward will be joining a Wanderers side sat 17th in League One, and who have won just one of their last six games.

After a promising beginning to the 2021/22 season, Bolton’s form seems to have slowly dropped off. Ian Evatt’s side sit five points clear of the drop zone with a game in hand, not too concerning a record when considering they were promoted from League Two just last season.

He then went on to play for Icelandic and German sides Viking and Kaiserslautern, before finally moving to his first English side, Wolves, in 2016.

An experienced Championship player, Böðvarsson has spent the last six years in the second tier. The forward left Wolves after a singular season, joining promotion hopefuls Reading who he made 55 appearances for. Since leaving the Madejski Stadium in 2018, he has played solely for Millwall, often coming on as an impact substitute.

It will be intriguing to see the impact Böðvarsson has on this Wanderers side, who have scored five goals in their last six games. The Icelandic attacker will be wearing the number nine shirt, which has been left unoccupied since the departure of Eoin Doyle.

Up next for the Trotters is a trip to Shrewsbury Town this weekend.
