Bolton signs French defender Puygrenier on loan

Bolton has signed French defender Sebastien Puygrenier from Zenit St. Petersburg on loan until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old Puygrenier agreed to the move last week but only received international clearance to complete the switch on Thursday.
"He's played against a lot of the big clubs, he's got a good bit of pace and he knows the game," Bolton manager Gary Megson said. "We are looking forward to seeing whether he can defend in the most difficult league in the world."
Puygrenier could make his Premier League debut against Manchester United on Saturday.
With several players injured and suspended for last week's 1-0 loss at Arsenal, Bolton was forced to field a defense featuring three players who had started a total of only nine league matches this season.
