Bolton Wanderers have completed the signing of veteran striker Les Ferdinand on a 12-month contract.

Ferdinand, 37, has turned down a new deal at Leicester to become Bolton's second summer signing after the capture of Michael Bridges from Leeds.

"Les Ferdinand is a goalscorer," said Bolton manager Sam Allardyce.

"He scored 12 goals in 28 games last season in a struggling side. He got two against us as I recall and he will be a valuable squad member."

The ex-Newcastle and Spurs frontman had been linked with Championship outfits QPR and Millwall.
