New Bolton Wanderers signing Fabrice Muamba feels the club can push for a European berth next season.

On Monday, Muamba joined Bolton on a four-year deal from relegated Birmingham City for a fee in the region of £5million.

The Trotters have twice qualified for the Uefa Cup in recent campaigns, but faltered last term, narrowly avoiding the drop.

Muamba, though, is sure that, under the guidance of manager Gary Megson for a full season, the club can recreate their previous achievements.

Europe

The England Under 21 midfielder told Bolton's official website: "Bolton are a big club and have been in Europe before. We can do that again especially with the players we have here and those the manager is trying to bring in.

"I am very excited and looking forward to the challenge. I had my first taste of the Premier League last year and I wanted more.

"As soon as I knew of the interest from Bolton I was ready to come here.

"I had a good year in Birmingham but this is a new start for me and I am looking forward to it."
