Bolton seal Ricketts deal
Donovan Ricketts
Ricketts should sign a permanent deal at the end of the season
Bolton have completed the signing of Jamaican goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts on loan from Village United.

Ricketts has signed on loan with a view to a permanent 200,000 deal in the summer.

The international goalkeeper will go straight into Bolton's squad for the FA Cup tie at Tranmere on Saturday.

Boss Sam Allardyce is also hoping to sign Javi Moreno from Atletico Madrid, but knows he could be hampered by the club's financial situation.

Bolton confirmed earlier this week that multi-millionaire Eddie Davies has completed his takeover at the club, but have given their manager no guarantees about available transfer funds.

Allardyce added: "The financial restrictions are a problem because I don't have a budget. I have to present a player to the chairman and then I find out whether I can afford him or not".
