Ben Amos has reportedly joined Bolton Wanderers after a successful loan spell at The Trotters.

The Daily Mail is among the sources to report the news that Ben Amos has completed a move to Bolton, after impressing last season at the Macron Stadium on a half season-long loan.

The Macclesfield-born goalkeeper spent 14 years at Manchester United but only made seven first-team appearances for the club, going out on loan to Peterborough, Molde, Oldham, Hull City and Carlisle United before spending a brief spell with Bolton in the last campaign.

He played nine Championship games for Neil Lennon’s side and did enough to convince the Bolton boss that he is the ideal candidate to replace Adam Bogdan, who is set to sign for Liverpool, as per the official Liverpool website.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman did his utmost to sign Amos, but Bolton did their work quickly to secure him as a free agent, as per the Nottingham Post.

Amos could be the first of three goalkeepers to leave Old Trafford this summer with first-choice David De Gea a transfer target for Real Madrid, according to the Mirror, and Anders Lindegaard likely to be surplus to requirements.

Lindegaard has played second fiddle to de Gea for four years and the arrival of Victor Valdes in January seemingly ended his chapter at Manchester United.

It will be interesting to see how Amos gets on.
