Swansea City forward Marvin Emnes joins Bolton on loan
22nd September 2015
Swansea City forward Marvin Emnes has joined Championship club Bolton Wanderers on a three-month loan deal.
Emnes, 27, made the temporary switch to the Macron Stadium today where he will team up with former Swans favourites Stephen Dobbie and Darren Pratley, who is now club captain at Bolton.
The Dutchman, who represented his country at all age levels from Under-16 to U21, has found game-time hard to come by at the Liberty Stadium since signing a permanent deal in July 2014 following two spells on loan from Middlesbrough.
Emnes, who signed for Middlesbrough in 2008 from Sparta Rotterdam for £3.2m, impressed during a month-long loan at the Swans in the 2010-11 campaign, scoring twice in four league games, including the winning goal in the Welsh derby at the Cardiff City Stadium.
He returned on loan in January 2014 until the end of the season before completing a permanent transfer that summer.
Available to manager Garry Monk as a striker or winger, Emnes made 17 Premier League appearances last season, mostly from the bench, and scored twice in two Capital One Cup appearances.
This season, his only appearance came in the Capital One Cup clash against York City, with Emnes scoring the final goal in a 3-0 victory.
