Bolton manager Owen Coyle has strengthened his attacking options by signing Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge on loan until the end of the season.
Sturridge goes straight into the squad to face Wolves on Wednesday after seeing his first-team opportunities limited at Stamford Bridge.
Coyle is delighted to have the 21-year-old on board, and said: "I am really pleased to have Daniel with us. He is a terrific young talent and one of the most exciting strikers in the country. We are all looking forward to working with him."
Birmingham-born Sturridge was part of the Chelsea squad that won the league and cup double last term after beginning his career at Manchester City.
Sturridge said: "I spoke with the manager and he outlined what he hopes to achieve and his plans.
"It was an easy decision to sign for Bolton and I am looking forward to linking up with the squad on Tuesday.
"It has been a very busy and exciting day. I found out that the club were interested in me over the weekend and everything has happened fairly quickly."
