Bolton have completed the signing of former Blackburn Rovers under-21 captain Sam Lavelle, who joins the club on a free transfer.

Lavelle, who had been with Rovers since the age of eight, departed Ewood Park at the end of June, bringing an end to more than a decade at Ewood Park.

The 19-year-old defender has represented Scotland at youth level and after a brief trial period with Wanderers, has signed forms at Macron Stadium, where he will initially link up with a new-look development squad spearheaded by David Lee.

Announcing the news on Twitter, Lavelle said: "It's been a complicated few months but finally delighted to sign for @OfficialBWFC, really excited for my future at this club."
