DANNY Shittu is delighted to be back in the Premier League.

The Bolton new boy briefly tasted life in the top flight with Watford two seasons ago.

But when the Championship outfit failed to bounce back at the first attempt last season, the Nigerian defender knew his future lay elsewhere.

Linked with a move to Scottish giants Rangers, Shittu also received offers from France and Greece, as well as closer to home.

But as soon as Wanderers showed an interest, the rugged, 27-year-old centre-half jumped at the chance.

And he is convinced he can more than hold his own in the Premiership after joining from the Hornets in a £2million move.

“The Premiership is where I’ve always wanted to be,” said Shittu, who began his career at Charlton and has also had spells with QPR and Blackpool.
