Bolton have signed Scottish starlet Gary Fraser on a free transfer from Hamilton Academical, Sky Sports understands.
The highly-rated 19-year-old has agreed a two-year deal at Bolton after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.
Bolton have held a long-term interest in Fraser and tried to initially sign him in January.
Former Celtic youth product Fraser was highly-regarded as Hamilton and a number of clubs were thought to be monitoring his progress.
However, Bolton have won the race for his signature and as he viewed as one for the future Dougie Freedman is expected to send him out on loan this season so that he can get regular first-team action under his belt.
