Bolton’s new signing Tuncay will score goals and is a great acquisition for the club, according to defender David Wheater.

Wheater played with the striker at Middlesbrough for two seasons and has predicted that his “flair up front” will add something new to the Trotters’ play.

The 24-year-old said: "When he was at Middlesbrough I saw what he can do in training every day. Some things are unbelievable and he takes those attributes onto the pitch as well.

"I was delighted when I heard he was joining us. I was happy from a personal point of view and also from the team's perspective. He is a great acquisition for us.”

The Turk joins out-and-out striker Kevin Davies in the ranks, and Wheater believes he will be able to play his best just behind the front man to mix things up for Owen Coyle’s team.


Wheater, who joined Bolton in January after 140 appearances for Middlesbrough, said: "He likes to play just behind the main striker and he will offer us a bit more flair up front. We have some good strikers here and Tuncay has added to that. He has shown what he can bring to our team against Macclesfield.

"Tuncay is probably the one who will get on the knock downs and get a goal for us. There are goals everywhere in this team."

Tuncay is expected to have his second run out for Bolton, and make his league debut for the club, when the Trotters travel west to Liverpool on Saturday.
