Bolton Wanderers have agreed a deal to sign Hungarian goalkeeper Adam Bogdan.

The Under 21 international will join the Premier League club on a two-year contract, subject to international clearance.

Bogdan arrives at The Reebok Stadium from Vasas, although he spent last season on loan in the Hungarian second division with Vecses.

The 20-year-old is relishing his move to England and will link up with his new team-mates next week.

Dream for keeper

"I'd like to thank everybodyu who works at the Under 21 national team, to Vasas, to Vecses, and their coach Istvan Pisont," Bogdan told MT1.

"Without them, this contract couldn't come into existence.

"I didn't even dare to dream that my agents' forecast would come true. In Vecses they told me that I'd go to England from here.

"Bolton have already started the preparations for the next season, but I only have to join them next Monday.

"Manager Sammy Lee has let me go and finish all my things in Hungary, but by Sunday evening I'll be in England."
