Bolton Wanderers FC have signed defender Iván Campo on a season-long loan from Real Madrid CF.
The 28-year-old central defender passed a medical and agreed personal terms after meeting club officials on Friday evening. Campo is the latest foreign international to join Bolton, following Frenchman Youri Djorkaeff, Nigerian 'Jay-Jay' Okocha and Turkey's Bülent Akin.
"We are thoroughly delighted to sign Iván after weeks of hard negotiating," Bolton manager Sam Allardyce told the club's website. "He has returned to Spain to sort out some personal affairs and will return next week. Due to his situation at Real Madrid, he's not had much match practice and will require two to three weeks before he reaches the right level of match fitness."
Bolton, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, are second from bottom of the English Premiership after losing their first two games.
