Bolton manager Gary Megson has signed Sean Davis on a free transfer - six months after Portsmouth rejected a Â£3.5million bid for the midfielder.
Megson has beaten a number of clubs for the 29-year-old's services after his contract at Fratton Park expired.
Davis has agreed a three-year deal and Megson said: "We are delighted to have signed such an experienced Premier League footballer."
He added: "Sean made 40 appearances last season for Portsmouth and he will strengthen our midfield.
"We wanted to bring him to the Reebok in January but our bid of Â£3.5million was turned down by Portsmouth, who didn't want him to leave."
London-born Davis has made nearly 200 top-flight appearances with Fulham, Tottenham and Portsmouth.
He is also a former England Under-21 international, earning 12 caps between 2000 and 2002.
