Bolton swoop for Dzemaili and Cid
Blerim Dzemaili
Blerim Dzemaili is one of Switzerland's finest young talents
Bolton have signed FC Zurich's Switzerland midfielder Blerim Dzemaili and Bordeaux centre-half Gerald Cid on pre-contract agreements.

Dzemaili, 20, is Zurich captain and was in Switzerland's World Cup squad.

He has agreed a two-year contract, while 23-year-old Cid has signed a four-year deal to join in the summer.

Bolton boss Sam Allardyce said: "I am excited by the prospect of working with Blerim next season and Gerald is one of the best young defenders in France."

Allardyce added: "Blerim is a fantastic player, who has played for the best team in Switzerland for the past three years. For someone so young, he has a wealth of experience.

"At the tender age of 20, he is the skipper of FC Zurich and is expected to become a regular international for Switzerland in the years ahead.

"He has hardly missed a game for FC Zurich since he started playing for them at the age of 17.

"We have been monitoring Gerald for quite some time."
