BOLTON Wanderers have been dealt a blow with the news that Peter Kioso has joined Northampton Town on loan until the end of the season.

The right wing back had initially joined Wanderers on a season-long loan from Luton Town - and was a hit at the University of Bolton Stadium, scoring three goals in 14 appearances.

But Kioso was recalled by his parent club earlier this month.

After being an unused substitute against QPR and not making the squad for games against Bournemouth and Brentford, Wanderers boss Ian Evatt had hoped they could come to another arrangement with Luton so that Kioso could return to complete the initial agreement.

But the 21-year-old has today finalised a move to League One Northampton.

"Peter is a player we have been tracking for some time and have been very impressed by," said Northampton manager Keith Curle.

"He was on our radar before he went out to Bolton, we monitored his performances there, he did very well for Bolton and has shown excellent progression in his career.

"He has both power and pace, he is a good athlete and he can play in any role down the right hand side, as a wing back or a full back.

"He is a threat going forward, he has good defensive qualities too and he will add to our squad."
