Luke Brattan has joined Championship strugglers Bolton Wanderers on a loan deal until 3 January.
The 25 year-old signed for Manchester City on a free transfer yesterday, before being immediately sent on loan to The Trotters.
Brattan had been unattached after he was released by A-League club Brisbane Roar in August.
The Australian had a successful career in his homeland, winning the A-League on three occasions and was named in the 2014 A-League PFA Team of the Year.
The midfielder made seven appearances for the Australian Under-20 side and gained his first call up to the senior national team for the Socceroos’ World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh in June this year.
Bolton have had a difficult start to the season and currently sit bottom of the Championship. They travel to Preston on Saturday, where Brattan is expected to make his debut.
