Bolton have signed Spain Under-19 striker Rodrigo Moreno from Benfica on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old has been allowed to go out on loan despite only joining Benfica from Real Madrid last month.

Brazilian-born Rodrigo scored Spain's only goal in their 2-1 defeat to France in the European Under-19 Championship final in July.

Assistant boss Sandy Stewart said: "He is a quick, exciting young player who can play up front and out wide."

Rodrigo will be reunited with former team-mate Marcos Alonso, who joined Bolton from Real Madrid in July.

"We watched Rodrigo play alongside Marcos in the Real Madrid B team last season and we were obviously interested in signing the two of them," Stewart added.

"He went to Benfica as part of the Angel di Maria deal but we still chased his signature and now we are delighted to eventually get him to our football club.

"We are looking forward to working with him and we are confident that he will bolster what is already a strong squad of players."
