Kaiyne Woolery says his impending transfer to Bolton is for footballing reasons, rather than the financial gain of a move to the Premier League.

Woolery, who recently spent a month on trial at Burnley, will complete a £10,000 switch to Wanderers in the coming days, after impressing on the non-league scene with Tamworth.

The Clarets were interested in taking the 19-year-old to Turf Moor on a permanent deal, but Woolery says discussions with Bolton boss Dougie Freedman were productive and he believes he has a much better chance of developing as a player at a Championship club.

"I knew of interest from several clubs at the back end of last year," Woolery told the Tamworth Herald.

"The speculation grew and grew but I was doing my up most to stay grounded, focused on helping Tamworth avoid relegation and to stay fit as well.

"I had a trial up at Burnley that went well and I enjoyed my month there.

"Burnley have just gone up so the attraction of the bright lights of the Premiership is enormous.

"But I honestly feel the move to Bolton is the best one for me, my head ruled my heart and I feel I will have a lot more opportunity to play at the level.

"The manager Dougie Freedman sold Bolton to me and he has been top class.

"He sat me down straight away and told me how he aims to improve my weaknesses as a footballer, my overall game and what my future development would include.

"He captured my attention instantly with his plans for me at Bolton. He is adamant that I will be involved and that if I work hard enough, and want it enough, the rewards will be there for me with minutes in the first team.

"This was key for me. So many players chase the money or the fame but I want to be the best I can be as a football player.

"I'm a young lad and moving along way from home at 19 isn't such a bad thing.

"I was away from home a fair bit when playing for Tamworth and that never affected me so I don't feel there will be too much difference.

"Moving North provides me with the opportunity to focus all my attentions on football. I will grasp this chance with both hands and I will be doing all I can to become the best player possible.

"These opportunities are few and far between. I am living the dream and I'm grateful for my move. I have to say a big thank you to all involved at Tamworth in particular."
