Forward Zach Clough joined the Blues on a two-year deal during the summer 2021 transfer window.
He was born in Denton, Greater Manchester, and came through the youth system with Bolton Wanderers.
Having joined the club as an eight-year-old he made his debut at the age of 19, and he went on to bag 29 goals in 68 appearances during his first spell with his boyhood club.
Inevitably the scouts came calling, and that prompted Bolton to offer a new two-year deal in 2017.
That didn’t prevent Nottingham Forest from upping the ante and he made the switch to the City Ground on a four-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee [reported to be in excess of £3m] during the January 2017 transfer window.
He had loan spells with Bolton and Rochdale whilst with Forest, and he joined Wigan Athletic on a short-term deal at the end of the January 2021 transfer window.
