Bolton eye ex-Fulham free agent despite financial woes

Chris David scored one Premier League goal for Fulham and could return to England with Championship strugglers Bolton Wanderers.

It has been a horrible couple of weeks for Bolton Wanderers fans, so a new signing would at least give the supporters something to look forward to.

According to Bolton News, the Trotters are in a dire financial situation and are being prevented from registering new players this month thanks to a transfer embargo.

But this has not stopped them from offering a trial to the former Fulham forward Chris David.

Free agent, Chris David, an 25-year-old Dutch attacker who has recently been on the books at FC Utrecht, has been drafted in to train with the first team this week and has been staying in the club hotel.

Signed by Martin Jol at Craven Cottage from FC Twente, the youth international was tipped for big things when he first arrived in English football but suffered injury problems and played only a handful of games in West London before being loaned out.

David accepted the offer of a trial in Lancashire and even scored for Bolton’s U23s in their 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest on Monday (07-01) night. David was also involved in the other two goals in this winning game.

The Amsterdam-born attacker was at Fulham from 2013 and 2015 after moving to Craven Cottage from FC Twente but failed to live up to lofty expectations due to a series of injuries.

David did score a stunning goal on his Premier League debut at the end of the 2013/14 season, however, curling a shot into the top corner against Crystal Palace.

Now he wants to resurrect his career in England and has accepted the offer of a trial at Lostock.
