Bolton Wanderers are delighted to announce the signing of Erhun Oztumer.


The playmaker puts pen to paper on a two-year deal at Macron Stadium to become the Whites’ second signing of the summer, having most recently been on the books of Walsall.
Spending time in Charlton Athletic’s youth academy, the midfielder had spells in Turkey with Sivasspor and Anadolu Uskudar before moving back to England with non-league Dulwich Hamlet in 2012.

Scoring over 60 goals and helping them win promotion during his two years at the club, the 27-year-old moved back into the professional game with Peterborough United in June 2014 before signing for Walsall two years later.

Named in the PFA Sky Bet League One Team of the Year in both of his seasons with the Saddlers, he scored 17 goals from 50 appearances last season, including a first Football League hat-trick away at Southend United, to help Walsall narrowly avoid relegation.

Totalling 32 goals from 95 appearances during his time at the Banks’s Stadium, Bolton fans will also remember the Turk scoring a memorable long-range volley on his previous appearance at Macron Stadium in February 2017.

And with a number of clubs showing interest in the highly-rated midfielder, the Trotters have moved quickly to snap up his signature ahead of their 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Speaking to bwfc.co.uk after completing the move, Oztumer said: “I’m thrilled to put pen to paper and I just can’t wait to get started now.

“I am excited to test myself in the Sky Bet Championship with some great players and I’ll be looking to show the Bolton faithful exactly what I am capable of.

“I had a chat with the manager and I really felt as though it was the right move for me. He told me all the things that I wanted to hear and that’s why I’m here today as a Bolton Wanderers player.”

Manager Phil Parkinson added: “We’re really pleased with the signing of Erhun.

“He has been one of the most productive players in Sky Bet League One over the past few seasons for a team in and around the bottom half of the table and we’re very much looking forward to working with him over the next couple of years.”

I am very pleased with this signing.A midfield player who can run at defences, shoot and score on a regular basis is just what we need.Parky can pick several others to do the tackling if the young Turk is not so good at that.I am surprised one of Preston, Wigan or Blackburn havent offered too much money for us.

Just watched his goals above, some absolute crackers there and he looks great at free kicks too. Can't wait to see how he does next season

Obviously he needs to prove he can step up, but it’s refrshing signing a bit of a wildcard like this and not another well known quantity in the Buckley/Henry mould.

Fully expecting him to be written off as anonymous and lazy, if he doesn’t get 3 in his first 3 games though.

Happy with this signing, a bit of flair in midfield is what we've lacked for ages. Maybe it means Ameobi won't be staying.
