Bolton sign Norwich goalkeeper Remi Matthews

Bolton have signed Norwich goalkeeper Remi Matthews on an initial loan deal, with the move becoming permanent in January.

Matthews came through the ranks at Carrow Road before signing professional terms with the Canaries in 2014.

The highly-rated 24-year-old has enjoyed loan spells at Burton, Doncaster, Hamilton and Plymouth in recent years.

Speaking of his switch to the University of Bolton Stadium, Matthews said: “I’m delighted to be here. This is a massive club that is going places and the main thing for me is that I wanted to come to a club with ambition.

“This was definitely the move that I wanted to get done.

“It’s different scenery after being at Norwich for so long, but it’s a massive club that should be in the Premier League.”

Bolton are seventh in the Championship with a win and a draw from their opening two games, while Norwich are 17th with just one point.
