Bolton have completed the signing of Brandon Comley, who had been available as a free agent following his release by Colchester United.

Comley has signed a two-year contract at the University of Bolton Stadium and reported for training with his new Wanderers teammates on Monday, as they began their pre-season preparations ahead of anticipated return to competitive action in September.

The 24-year-old, who has nine caps for Montserrat, joined the Queens Park Rangers academy at the age of nine and progressed through to first-team level at Loftus Road, making three substitute appearances before moving to Colchester in January 2018 following an initial loan spell.

The midfielder made 65 appearances during his two-and-a-half year stay at the JobServe Community Stadium, but was released at the end of June due to financial cutbacks enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Colchester's loss could prove to be Bolton's gain, however, and Comley admits to being excited at the prospect of a promotion push this coming season.

"I'm really pleased to have finally got the deal done because there are exciting times ahead," Comley told bwfc.co.uk.

"It was great to meet all the lads and get underway with that the gaffer wants us all to do."

Wanderers Head Coach Ian Evatt added: "Brandon is a technically gifted midfield player who can build attacks with his range of passing as well as be dynamic out of possession.

"He is a player who I have admired for a long time and we are excited to have him on board."
