Opinion: Bolton Wanderers should snap up soon-to-be free agent this summer, regardless of what league they are in

Swansea City’s Nathanael Ogbeta has adapted well to life at Bolton Wanderers since his January loan switch.

Bolton Wanderers swooped to land the left-back on a temporary basis earlier this winter as they look to gain promotion from League One.

Ogbeta, 22, has since made eight appearances for Ian Evatt’s side and has chipped in with two goals and two assists.

He is due to return to the Swans this summer when his deal at the Toughsheet Community Stadium expires but the Trotters will have the chance to sign him permanently as his contract with his parent club runs out in June.

Who is this?

Bolton Wanderers should swoop for loan ace

Ogbeta would be an ideal summer acquisition for Bolton, regardless of what league they are in.

He would be a risk-free addition on a free transfer, assuming Swansea don’t give him an extension anytime soon, and he would add more competition to the Trotters’ ranks.

Although he is still a bit raw, he is a decent age and has potential to grow and develop in the future. He also has bags of pace and has proven to be a threat going with his goals and assists so far.

Ogbeta’s time at Swansea hasn’t worked out for whatever reason but his move to Bolton has given him the confidence to show what he can do again.

He spent time at Peterborough United last term and helped the Posh get to the play-offs. The ex-England youth international played 20 times for the Posh.

The Salford-born man rose up through the academy ranks at Manchester City but never made a senior appearance for the current Premier League champions.

Ogbeta left the Etihad Stadium permanently for a season-and-a-half at Shrewsbury Town in the third tier before Swansea landed him. He hasn’t managed to get much game time in Wales, hence why he has been allowed to leave twice, and a move away would be a sensible decision by him later this year.

Bolton fits the bill for him and they should consider landing him for nothing, even if they go up.
