Bülent Akin has sacrificed the chance to play UEFA Champions League football with Galatasaray SK to join English side Bolton Wanderers FC.
The 23-year-old Turkish left-sided midfield player has signed a three-year contract. Bülent joins fellow recent signings Augustin 'Jay-Jay' Okocha and Delroy Facey at the Reebok stadium.
"Bülent is a highly-rated player in his homeland and is looking forward to playing in the [FA] Premiership with us," Bolton manager Sam Allardyce told the club's official website.
