Great move by Wigan just rubs it in. Impressed by Bogle in the Cup match and he is a goalscorer may keep the pie eaters up.

Adam Le Fondre gives up payment from Wigan Athletic and Cardiff City to force through Bolton Wanderers move

Adam Le Fondre passed up a “significant” cash payment to ensure his move to Wanderers went through on deadline day.

Whites boss Phil Parkinson revealed the striker waived money owed to him by Wigan Athletic and his parent club Cardiff City to ensure his return to the Macron Stadium did not break down.

Le Fondre could make his debut at MK Dons on Saturday alongside fellow new arrivals Viv Solomon-Otabor, Chris Long and Felipe Morais.

And Parkinson admits his arrival could be the pick-me-up Wanderers needed after the sale of Zach Clough to Nottingham Forest.

“Bringing him back is an exciting thing for us,” he said. “I met Adam and what struck me was his desire to play for Bolton.

“There were a number of clubs looking at him but he enjoyed his time here and whether it’s out there or not, I don’t know, but I can tell you he gave up money to come to Bolton.

“It’s the first time since I have been a manager that I have seen a player wipe off money like that, such were the complicated negotiations between Wigan and Cardiff.

“I am really pleased. He came into training and gave everyone a lift.”

Parkinson insists Le Fondre’s arrival does not mean he will need to change the formation he has used for most of the season but that he does represent a penalty box threat the club has lacked.

“I’ve watched a lot of his games and he’s played up front with a target man, with a midfielder behind him like Dave Edwards at Wolves, or a clever number 10 like Cloughy was for us.

“Cloughy was a scorer of some very good goals but I think Alfie can score those six yards box goals. He’s made a career from getting in the box and anticipating where the ball will drop.

“He’s the type of player we haven’t really had.”

Parkinson also confirmed the decision to sign Le Fondre was made on Monday after the Football League confirmed Wanderers’ quota.

“We were genuinely plate-spinning,” he confirmed. “We hadn’t agreed anything prior to that, Adam or otherwise.”

:facepalm:
Well he says he doesn't HAVE to change the system so he is pointing out that it remains an option. My question would be whether or not Parky sees the alternatives.
In my heart of hearts I just feel that he'll never be able to let go of what he knows so I imagine that "changing the system" for Parky just means shuffling the front four. 

I even wonder if he tries anything different in training e.g. playing Derik in midfield or dispensing with the target man so we can get the ball down and pass around them.
