Bolton Wanderers can confirm that Conor Wilkinson has joined Gillingham on a permanent deal.

The 22-year-old moved to Macron Stadium in the summer of 2013 after leaving Millwall’s youth ranks and went on to make 16 first team appearances for the club in league and cup.

During his time with the Whites, the Republic of Ireland youth international also spent loan spells with Chester, Torquay United, Oldham Athletic, Barnsley, Newport County, Portsmouth and Chesterfield.

Everybody at Bolton Wanderers would like to thank Conor for his efforts and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Agreed!

Very Happy



Wasn't he supposed to be on big wages?

I'm guessing we are probably going to be making up his wages at his new club for the coming season but at least this gives us another space in the squad to get a better player in.

Why would we pay his wages?

Well if he was really on the amount of money he was reported to be on (£8,000 per week iirc?) then I can't imagine Gillingham or any similar club having anything like that money to be able to afford to sign him.

In which case I am guessing they have made an offer for what they could afford and we make up the rest for this season when his contract was due for expiry.

I could be wrong of course and Gillingham could be rolling in cash, or Wilkinson is happy to give up his lucrative contract with us. It's just that I think my suggestion is probably closest to the truth of things.

He's signed for Gillingham on a permanent deal, we won't be paying any of his wages.

He won't be missed, never looked like he would become a regular.
