Defender Jlloyd Samuel has agreed a deal to join Bolton on a free transfer from Aston Villa.

The 26-year-old will sign a four-year contract on 1 July.

Samuel joined Villa as an apprentice and went on to make 150 appearances but he has struggled to secure first-team football this season.

Bolton boss Sammy Lee told the club website: "He's versatile and will offer us quality in a number of positions, which is vital for our squad."

Samuel is Lee's first signing since taking over from Sam Allardyce as Bolton manager.

And he is hoping the move will kickstart his career.

"I was at Viilla for 10 years and when you have been at a place for so long you become part of the furniture," he told Bolton's website.

"I felt like I needed a change and I'm sure that by coming up to Bolton I will get myself playing again. Bolton is the club to get my career back on track."
