Bolton Wanderers have signed Manchester City midfielder Martin Petrov on a free transfer.

The Bulgarian international's contract with the Manchester club was due to run out at the end of the month, and he has now agreed terms with Bolton, with the club confirming he will join up with his new teammates on July 1.

Aston Villa and Everton were rumoured to be interested in acquiring the 31-year-old’s services, but Bolton have pounced quickly to snap up the player.

Petrov spent three years with City, scoring 12 goals in 66 appearances, with his time consistently hampered by injury, making just 25 Premier League appearances in the last two seasons.

In 77 caps, Petrov has scored 19 times for Bulgaria.
