The Wales international joins The Trotters on a two-and-a-half-year deal, having moved to Barnsley in 2011 where he scored 20 goals in 64 appearances.

It is believed that Davies' contract involved a £300,000 release clause, enabling Bolton to talk with the striker.

Bolton boss Dougie Feedman said: "Craig is a player I am really fond of. I actually tried to sign him a couple of years ago and he will bring all the right ingredients to our club.

"He is hungry. He hasn't got the t-shirt of playing in the Premier League, but is desperate to get it. He's a good age and represents very good value for the football club.

"He is the type of player I want around the place."

The 27-year-old, who played for Manchester City's youth team, is set to make his debut this weekend against Millwall.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
