Tom Walker is one of four players to have signed a first professional contract with Bolton Wanderers.

Walker, who made 11 first-team appearances for Wanderers this season, scoring once, made his debut as a late substitute in a 1-1 draw against Leeds United in January and went on to establish himself as a regular part of the side as the campaign drew to a close.

The 19-year-old has been with the Trotters since the age of nine and has progressed through the academy system at Macron Stadium. Joining him in putting pen-to-paper are fellow prospects Rob Holding, Channing Campbell-Young and Yvan Wassi.

Holding spent the final weeks of the season on loan at Bury, for whom he made just one appearance, while Campbell-Young and Wassi, who previously moved to the club from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, respectively, feature regularly for Wanderers' development squad.

Harry Campbell could soon follow suit in penning a deal, after the young goalkeeper was offered a professional contract, while Jamie Thomas, Tyler Garrett and Chris Cvetko's have all been offered the opportunity to extend their scholarships with the club.
