Former Millwall defender Beevers signs for Bolton

BOLTON Wanderers have confirmed the signing of Mark Beevers on a two-year deal.

The defender joins Phil Parkinson's recently-relegated side on a free transfer, after his Millwall contract expired on June 30.

Beevers played 51 times for the Lions last season, scoring five goals, but despite Neil Harris wanting to keep the defender, he chose to head closer to home up north once more, after moving to The Den from Sheffield Wednesday in 2013.

Harris moved quickly to replace him, bringing in Shaun Hutchinson from Fulham before pre-season training begun on July 1.

Beevers will now join up with his new club for a pre-season training camp in Sweden, where he will be re-united with ex-Lions loanee Chris Taylor.
