Bolton have completed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing on a season-long loan.
The 23-year-old joins the club with exceptional pedigree having already made over 50 appearances for the Premier League side.
"We have been in the market for a player of this kind for a long time and Jay is someone that we have always had an eye on," manager Owen Coyle told the club's official website.
"He was previously never available and, indeed, played the majority of games in Liverpool's first team last season in the Premier League.
"We did everything we could to bring Jay to the football club and so we are thrilled to bring in a player of his calibre.
"He is a young player that is driven, who is a terrific passer of the ball. He has a real desire to do well and has all the attributes that we crave at Bolton Wanderers."
