FORMER IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Daryl Murphy has joined Bolton Wanderers until the end of the season, subject to clearance, after leaving Nottingham Forest.

The 36-year-old Waterford-born forward scored three goals in 32 appearances for Ireland, while his previous clubs have included Waterford, Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday, Celtic, Ipswich and Newcastle United.

He joins a Bolton side that are currently bottom of League One with one draw and four losses from their opening five games.

In addition, Keith Hill’s side started the season with a 12-point deduction after going into administration earlier this year.

Last week, the club were saved from the imminent threat of extinction, after a takeover deal was completed.

Murray Kinsella joins Gavan Casey, Ryan Bailey and Sean Farrell with their immediate reaction to Ireland’s 31-man squad for the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
