Bolton complete Rasiak loan deal

Grzegorz Rasiak
Rasiak has scored 25 goals in two years at Southampton

Bolton have signed forward Grzegorz Rasiak on loan from Southampton until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old Poland international has scored eight goals in 28 games for the Saints this season and joins with a view to a permanent deal.

Bolton boss Gary Megson said: "Grzegorz is a big powerful centre forward who knows where the back of the net is."

"This a big chance for me to play in the Premier League and to improve as a player," added Rasiak.

"It's only on loan at the moment. I still have two-and-a-half years remaining on my contract with Southampton but if I do well and score goals then who knows what the summer will bring.


"It wasn't an easy decision and I thought about it for a long time.

"I've really enjoyed my time here and it's a good club and a nice place to live."

Rasiak first moved to England when he signed for Derby in 2004. He moved to Tottenham just a year later but failed to establish himself at White Hart Lane.

He signed for Southampton in 2006, originally on loan, and has netted a total of 25 goals for the Championship side.
