After a long battle with Portuguese side Benfica, Bolton Wanderers have completed the signing of young left-back Marcos Alonso from Real Madrid. The Spaniard has signed a three year deal but the fee has been undisclosed.

Alonso has progressed rapidly through the ranks at the Bernabeu to the point where he made a first team appearance against Racing Santander in April. Alonso is following on in the footballing footsteps of generations gone by in his family and will hope success at Bolton will lead him to becoming a figure in the National team squads of years to come.

Alonso is manager Owen Coyle's third summer signing, following the arrivals of free transfers Martin Petrov and Robbie Blake. The left-back will provide stiff competition for current Bolton full-backs Paul Robinson and Jlloyd Samuel.

Coyle had this to say: "He is an exciting young player who has undoubted quality and he will bring that into our mix. I think that we have a real talent on our hands.
