Manchester City's teenage Cumbrian goalkeeper James Trafford has made a fresh loan move.

The 19-year-old has joined Bolton Wanderers for the second half of the season.

Trafford has spent the first half of 2021/22 with Accrington Stanley.

But he has now switched to a rival League One club in the January transfer window.

The promising Cumbrian, from Greysouthen, has made 11 first-team appearances for Accrington, making his Football League debut in the process.

He has been on the bench in recent weeks with Toby Savin preferred in goal by Stanley boss John Coleman.

The move to Bolton will now see former Carlisle United academy keeper Trafford, who is rated highly at Man City, competing with former Barrow man Joel Dixon.

The England Under-20 international was involved in the first-team squad at City last season and was praised by Pep Guardiola.

He has been on City's books since the age of 12 after being snapped up from Carlisle United's academy.

Bolton, who are 18th in League One, have also been strongly linked with another Cumbrian in Kyle Dempsey.

The Bolton News reported this week that Ian Evatt's club have made a bid for the Gillingham captain and former Carlisle star, who is from Maryport.

Bolton boss Ian Evatt said he was delighted to have signed Trafford.

“I’ve seen James play a fair bit and watched him play for England a few times,” said Evatt on the Bolton website.

“With Chris Markham [Bolton's technical performance director) coming from the FA we know people who have done a lot of work with James and how highly thought of he is within the England group and with Manchester City.

“We’re very lucky to have him and for Manchester City trusting us with him and we think he’ll make a difference to us.

“He’s only young but he’s a real leader, a big boy, an aggressive boy and we’re fortunate to have him in the building to help us until the end of the season.”
