The 21-year-old joined Wanderers from Oldham two-and-a-half years ago and, although he is yet to make his senior debut for the Championship outfit, he impressed with seven goals in 17 appearances during a loan spell at Bristol Rovers earlier this term.

Eaves was an unused substitute for the recent league draw with Millwall and boss Dougie Freedman has now confirmed the youngster is part of his long-term plans.

"I am absolutely delighted to sign a contract extension with the club," Eaves told Bolton's official website. "The manager explained everything to me and I am happy to commit myself to Wanderers.

"The gaffer has obviously shown a lot of faith in me and I think that it is just in my hands now. It is up to me to perform every day in training and hopefully I can do that.

"I will now continue to work hard and I hope that I can claim a place and be a regular in the side. The manager and the rest of his staff have been fantastic with me and it is great to now secure my future here.

"I went out on loan earlier this season and I think it was just a matter of something that I had to do to try and get some games and get my match fitness up.

"I feel a lot fitter and a lot sharper and now I hope to get into the team here with Wanderers."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
