2. Bogdan signed for Bolton in August 2007, eventually making his debut in English football on loan at Crewe Alexandra, where he made just the one appearance in 2009 against Bury.

3. He made his Bolton debut on 24 August 2010 in a 1-0 victory over Southampton in the League Cup, before making his first ever Premier League appearance in a 2-2 draw with Birmingham City on 29 August 2010, following a red card to now Latics goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen after just 39 minutes.
