TEAM Josh Vela

Signed as a youngster in the Bolton Wanderers Academy at the age of 9, Josh only left the club earlier this year at the age of 25 - leaving after 17 years.

The midfielder was, perhaps unsurprisingly, incredibly popular with the supporters of the Trotters having made 182 appearances for the side, including three in the Premier League.

Josh only rose to prominence within the Bolton squad following a spell on loan with Notts County in 2014, with their manager Shaun Derry citing Josh's importance to the team's good results after joining the Meadow Lane club.

Following that, he played his way into the Bolton squad in the next two Championship campaigns, with the side relegated from the division in 2016. He played all but two of their League One matches, scoring nine times from midfield, helping them to automatic promotion in the following campaign.

He remained a pivotal figure for Bolton Wanderers until they hit financial hardship, with Josh leaving at the end of the 2018/19 season, choosing to join Hibernian ahead of clubs in the English Championship.

Josh scored his first goal for the club in a Betfred Cup victory over Greenock Morton and has played six times since arriving.
