Weiss loan deal completed

Vladimir Weiss has completed his loan move to Bolton, which will see him spend the rest if the season at the Reebok Stadium.

The 20-year-old Slovakian winger has made one starting appearance as well as three off the bench for City this season, scoring his first senior goal in the win over Arsenal in the Carling Cup.

His deal has been inked in in time for him to be registered for Tuesday night’s game against Burnley, where new Bolton boss Owen Coyle will face the club he left only recently.

Vlad will be keen to see some valuable match action ahead of his country’s participation this summer’s World Cup, and everyone at City wishes him every success for the rest of the 2009/10 campaign.
