Former Leeds United and Charlton Athletic midfielder Andy Hughes has joined Bolton as a player and under the role of Professional Development Coach.

Hughes, who recently brought an end to a three-year spell at Charlton, will work with Wanderers' under-21 squad and academy teams, in a role not too dissimilar to the one vacated by Sammy Lee last month.

As well as working as a coach, the 36-year-old has been registered as a member of the Trotters' playing squad and will be available for first-team selection this coming season - although most, if not all, of his appearances are likely to be in the development squad.

In a playing career which has spanned a total of 18 years, Hughes has represented clubs such as Notts County, Norwich City and Leeds, but is perhaps best known for his time at Reading - for whom he scored 19 goals in 183 appearances, during a four-year stay at the Madejski Stadium.
