David Ngog has completed his transfer deadline day move to Bolton, his former club, Liverpool, have confirmed.
The French striker moved to Anfield from Paris St Germain in 2008 with a big reputation, but he was forced down the pecking order by the arrivals of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez.
Bolton as a result spent most of this summer chasing Ngog and have now got their man on what is understood to be a three-year deal.
Liverpool are reported to have received £4million from the sale, which represents a £2.5m profit on the fee they paid PSG.
"David will be a great addition to our squad. He is quick, can score goals and he knows what the Barclays Premier League is all about."
