Bolton sign striker Donaldson

Bolton Wanderers have announced the signing of former Sheffield United striker Clayton Donaldson on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old has signed a one-year deal at the Macron Stadium following his release from the Blades earlier this summer.

Donaldson made 29 appearances for Sheffield United last season (9 starts), scoring five goals for the Yorkshire club.

The Jamaican international brings bags of experience to the Trotters having scored 190 goals in 554 first appearances across nine different clubs in the United Kingdom.

Clayton Donaldson has spent the past four seasons in the second tier, playing for Birmingham City before joining the Blades.  He hit 15 goals in the Championship in his first season with the Blues before his numbers started to decline over the following seasons.

The striker is somewhat of a target man who offers a bit of pace.  If manager Phil Parkinson can get him back to his goalscoring ways then Bolton will have made a coup this summer.
