Bolton have completed the signing of Mexico striker Jared Borgetti.

Borgetti, 31, has agreed a two-year deal and Bolton will pay around £1m to his current club Pachuca.

Bolton boss Sam Allardyce told the club website: “We are just waiting for the all-clear on the medical.

“I am glad to say everything else is in place and by the time we get back home everything should be sorted out.”

If he passes the medical Borgetti will be the first Mexican to play in the Premiership.

Allardyce added: “His pedigree is excellent but the Premiership is still unknown to him and he will have to be at his best to make the impact we are looking for.

“It is a massive challenge for both the player and the club and I do know he has the mental strength to make it a success in England.”

Meanwhile, striker El-Hadji Diouf claims that he wants to finish his career at the Reebok Stadium after signing a four-year contract earlier this summer.

Diouf said: “This is the best club I’ve been at.

“From the fantastic supporters to the chairman Phil Gartside, everyone makes me feel welcome.

“There is no other club I want to play for and I want to sign with the club for life.”
