Former Ireland international Stephen Ireland is no longer without a club after signing a short term deal with Championship side Bolton.
There had been reports the 32-year-old was headed to the SPL with Aberdeen, but in a statement on Bolton's official website, the club have announced that Ireland is set to stay in England, signing for the Trotters on a short term contract.
Bolton manager Phil Parkinson has warned that Ireland still has to get up to speed in terms of match fitness but is sure the former Stoke midfielder "will make a positive contribution."
