Bolton have received a bonus payment of £500,000 from Swansea City, after a clause in David Ngog's contract was triggered at the end of last season.

Ngog joined the Swans in January for a nominal fee, signing a six-month contract at the Liberty Stadium. He made just three substitute appearances during his time with the Welsh club, accumulating a total of 42 minutes on the pitch, before being released at the end of June.

As part of the deal that saw Ngog leave for such a small fee, Wanderers included a clause that would see them receive an added bonus if Swansea retained their Premier League status.

The Swans occupied 15th place when Ngog arrived, three points above the relegation zone. Michael Laudrup's reign as manager ended little over a week later, but they would end the campaign in 12th position under the guidance of Garry Monk.

After six years in England, Ngog returned to France earlier this month after signing a two-year contract with Ligue 1 side Reims. He made his debut on Saturday and was on the scoresheet in a 2-0 victory over Toulouse.
