Bolton Wanderers Sign Nigerian Forward Chinedu Obasi On Short-Term Deal

Bolton Wanderers have signed Nigerian forward Chinedu Obasi on a deal until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 31-year-old, who most recently had a spell with Swedish side AIK, signs following a trial with the Trotters.

Obasi also played under former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson at Chinese side Shenzhen.

Obasi is Bolton’s second signing in two weeks after Jan Kirchhoff joined the club on 22 February.

Obasi was a member of the Nigerian side that finished third at the 2010 African Cup of Nations before suffering a group-stage exit at the World Cup later that year.

He also won a silver medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
