Bolton have completed the signing of Republic of Ireland midfielder Keith Andrews.

The 31-year old was released by West Bromwich Albion at the end of last season when his short-term deal expired and has now signed a three-year contract with the Trotters.

"We are pleased to have been able to bring in Keith early in the transfer window as there were a number of clubs interested in signing him," Bolton boss Owen Coyle told the club's official website.

"He is highly experienced both in domestic and international football, and he will bring strength, competition and a goalscoring threat to our midfield."

Andrews kicked off his career with Wolves back in 1999 and has since had spells with Oxford United, Stoke City, Walsall, Hull City, MK Dons, Ipswich Town and most notably Blackburn Rovers.
