Bolton have completed the signing of Iceland international Gretar Steinsson from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar for £3.5m.
Steinsson is manager Gary Megson's second Bolton signing
The 26-year-old right-back - who had an unsuccessful trial with Wanderers five years ago - has signed a three-and-half-year deal.
"This is a fantastic chance for me. It's a great club which has had many Icelandic players in the past," he said on Tuesday.
Steinsson is manager Gary Megson's second signing after Tamir Cohen.
"I was here training five-and-a-half years ago with the team and I recognise a lot of players," Steinsson added.
"I'm just glad because I've been waiting a long time to come here. I was really frustrated when I didn't get a contract five-and-a-half years ago.
"I've been waiting a long time to come over and now I'm here."
Megson told the club website: "Gretar is a versatile footballer who will give us a number of options and strengthen the squad."
He has made 19 international appearances for Iceland and was linked with a move to Middlesbrough last year.
