Bolton Wanderers: Gary Fraser joins after Hamilton exit

Bolton Wanderers have signed midfielder Gary Fraser after his exit from Hamilton, reports BBC Radio Manchester.

Manager Dougie Freedman was keen to sign the 19-year-old in January, but the former Celtic youngster rejected a move to the English Championship club.

It is expected that Fraser will join Scottish Premier League outfit Partick Thistle on loan in the coming season.

He appeared for Thistle in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday, scoring twice in a 5-1 victory against Annan Athletic.

Fraser spent a season with Accies, making 18 appearances before his contract was terminated in May.

He had rejected a transfer to Bolton in January despite having passed a medical and a fee being agreed between the clubs.
