Medical today: Greenidge agrees to leave Bolton Wanderers for London club

Bolton Wanderers defender Reiss Greenidge is undergoing a medical at Barnet today, Football Insider can reveal.

The 24-year-old played five times across all competitions for the Trotters last season.

A Bolton source has told Football Insider the National League club have agreed a season-long loan deal for the former West Brom man.

Greenidge struggled to break into Ian Evatt’s side last season and would face even more competition next season.

Bolton have already added centre-backs George Johnston and Will Aimson this summer.

He has a year left to run on his Bolton Wanderers contract that he signed last summer after moving from Norweigan side Arendal.

Greenidge is a graduate of the West Brom academy and has enjoyed previous spells in non-league.

He turned out for National League South sides Ebbsfleet United and Hemel Hempstead Town.

Barent narrowly avoided relegation to the National League South last season.

Former Liverpool and Leeds United winger Harry Kewell became the club’s new manager over the summer.

The Australian has previously spent time in charge of Crawley Town, Notts County and Oldham Athletic.

He will be hoping to tighten up the Bees’ leaky defence that conceded 88 goals in 42 games last season.
