Dean Moxey: Worked with Dougie Freedman at Crystal Palace

The full-back played under Freedman and his coaching staff for Palace, before the former Eagles striker left Selhurst Park for Wanderers in October 2012.

And Moxey is excited to get the chance to work under the manager once again.

The 28-year-old told Bolton's official website: "I do know the manager from our time at Crystal Palace - I think I was his first signing there. I really enjoyed working under the manager, Lennie (Lawrence) and Curtis (Fleming) at Palace.

"There were a few other clubs interested in me, but I just felt like Bolton was the right move for me.

"We were also looking at the possibility of me coming up here last January, but Palace didn't want to let me go out.

"But now, it's great to finally get the move sorted and to sign on the dotted line."

Moxey is keen to get to know his new team-mates as the Sky Bet Championship club fly away on a pre-season tour.

He added: "I don't know many of the players personally, but the trip to Scandinavia should be a good opportunity to get away with the lads and to get to know them a bit more.

"It's really good to have the deal done at this stage. It gives me chance to get to know the lads and the way they like to play.

"Fingers crossed I can keep myself fit and get a really good pre-season under my belt."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
