Newcastle sign Bolton skipper Nolan for £4m

Newcastle United have completed the £4m signing of Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Nolan.

The Trotters accepted a bid from their Premier League rivals yesterday and the player travelled to the north-east to discuss personal terms and have a medical on Friday.

Those talks and procedures were relatively straightforward and the 26-year-old midfielder has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Nolan made 323 appearances for Bolton following his debut in 1999 and will immediately fill a hole left by Joey Barton, who has been ruled out for 10 weeks with a broken foot.

Newcastle's under-fire owner Mike Ashley saw at first hand just how bad a shape the team were in during the 2-1 defeat at Manchester City on Wednesday.

And, after holding an emergency meeting with the rest of his board yesterday, Ashley has responded by making money available for Nolan.

Bolton manager Gary Megson was reluctant to discuss the deal at his weekly press conference this morning.

''For any more details you will have to go to the press office of the football club and they will let you know what we're doing,'' said the clearly-annoyed manager.

''That's as far as I'm going to go with it.''

Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear was delighted to have brought in a much-needed reinforcement for his midfield.

''When I heard there was a chance of getting Kevin I was determined we would pull out all of the stops to bring him here,'' he told the club's website.

''He's a player I think our fans will love. He's a real inspirational player and a great character. He's the sort of lad who never knows when he is beaten.

''He's got a good eye for goal and has got bags of Premier League experience.

''I think he is going to be a very valuable player for us and someone who can help us climb back up the table.''
