Defender Steinsson joins Bolton
Gretar Steinsson waves to the AZ Alkmaar
Steinsson is manager Gary Megson's second Bolton signing
Bolton have completed the signing of Iceland international Gretar Steinsson from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar for 3.5m.

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.
