As expected, Jlloyd Samuel has departed Villa Park for the Reebok Stadium.
The 26-year-old left back has signed a four-year contract with Bolton Wanderers becoming Sammy Lee's first signing since taking over as boss.
He will join Little Sam on July 1st.
Samuel, who made 199 first team appearances for Villa said:
'I was at Villa for 10 years and when you have been at a place for so long you become part of the furniture. I felt like I needed a change and I'm sure that by coming up to Bolton I will get myself playing again. Bolton is the club to get my career back on track.'
Always thought he was a decent player myself, shows what I know! He went from an ever present in the team, and often linking up brilliantly with Gareth Barry on the left, to not even making the bench. I'd say injuries broke his progress and confidence and he never managed to get a real look in under O'Neill.
I know one former player said off the record once that Jlloyd had great potential if only he would get his head from out of the clouds. Maybe that never happened.
Anyway, good luck Jlloyd.
