Wanderers full-back Mark Little has brought an end to his Bolton career. The defender has left Wanderers in favour of a return to Bristol.
However, Little will be joining the rivals of his former Bristol City in his new move as he signs for the city’s Rovers.
The deal will be complete once the defender’s current Wanderers contract expires on June 30.

Over two seasons with Bolton, Little made 35 appearances for Phil Parkinson’s side.
During the 2017/18 campaign, the full-back was a regular in the side, picking up 31 appearances in all competitions.
The following season, however, Mark Little fell very much out of favour with the Wanderers boss and was used just four times in all.
Little’s relegation to the bench was all but secured when Wanderers signed Pawel Olkowski last summer.
Now though, both full-backs have brought an end to their Wanderers careers. That leaves Bolton desperately short in defensive options.
When all said and done, Bolton’s team will have been completely decimated by the time June comes to an end.

Whoever is in charge come the start of pre-season, whether it’s Parkinson or not, will have a monumental task in building a squad to compete in League One next season.
It won’t be an easy task as the club could well face a transfer embargo as a result of going into administration.
