AZ defender Steinsson closes on Bolton move

Iceland right-back Gretar Steinsson is poised to complete a move to Bolton Wanderers from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar for a fee reported to be around 3million.

The defender is thrilled at getting a second chance at the Premier League club after an unsuccessful trial five years ago.

Steinsson, 26, told De Telegraaf: 'I said goodbye to the players and staff yesterday.

'This is a fantastic chance for me. Five years ago I was on trial at Bolton but I wasn't good enough. Now I am.

'It's a great club which has had many Icelandic players in the past.'

Steinsson has spent three seasons with AZ and has also worn the colours of MA Akranes and Young Boys.
