Bolton sign Lonergan

{EAV:c1bd42a8c22c5c17}    Bolton have completed the signing of Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan on a three-year deal.
The 28-year-old keeper had been first choice at Leeds United last season but found his place under threat when Elland Road boss Neil Warnock brought in Paddy Kenny from QPR this summer.That alerted Owen Coyle, who had been a big admirer of Lonergan from his days in the Championship with Burnley when the keeper - then at Preston - was being courted by a number of Premier League clubs, including Everton.Bolton are believed to have paid £200,000 for his services, beating off late competition from the likes of Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday.Speaking to the club, Lonergan was pleased to be on board.“You look at the quality of player in that changing room,” he said. “It’s a cliche and the same old thing but the stadium and everything about the club, it’s fantastic.”
