Bolton hint signing of former Rangers striker Dodoo is imminent

Resurrected EFL side Bolton Wanderers have hinted on Twitter that they are poised to announce the signing of former Rangers striker Joe Dodoo.

The 24-year-old spent three years at Ibrox having signed for the club from Leicester City in the summer of 2016.

In recent seasons, he’s spent time on loan at Charlton Athletic and Blackpool, with his last Gers appearance coming as a substitute in a Scottish Cup win over Falkirk in March 2018 [Soccerbase].

It came as little surprise, then, when the club announced the mutual termination of his contract on Deadline Day.

The player spent September without a club, but it seems Bolton are now set to hand him an opportunity.

It’s a move that appears to have been in the pipeline for some time. On the same day he was released by the Gers, Daily Mail journalist Mark Wilson claimed on Twitter that Wanderers were considering a swoop.

It has taken just over a month to come to fruition, but judging by a tweet from the club’s official account, the signing of Dodoo now appears imminent.

Note the emphasis on the ‘DO.’

They currently sit rock bottom of the English third tier on -9 points and are overwhelming favourites to be relegated.
