Jay Spearing joins Blackburn Rovers on loan

Published Add your comment

Jay Spearing has completed his move to Blackburn Rovers from north-west rivals Bolton Wanderers until the end of the season, according to BBC Sport.

Spearing is a former youth product of Liverpool's and even managed to complete a youngster's dream by playing for his boyhood team professionally.

The 26-year-old made over 55 appearances for Liverpool and was part of the League Cup winning side of 2012.

Bolton happy for Spearing to leave

Spearing has found opportunities hard to come by of late for Bolton with his last start coming against Norwich in October. The midfielder has been resigned to the bench many time not even being used. Despite being named captain in July, Bolton are happy for him to find new pastures. 

Spearing looked set to be moving to Vicarage Road but Watford chose to buy the Wigan Wembley hero, Ben Watson, as their new centre midfielder as they look to propel themselves into the automatic promotion places.

Chance to revive his career

The former Liverpool man will be hoping he can revive his career at Ewood Park after a few stagnant months at Bolton and will be hoping that Gary Bowyer will trust his abilities straight away by rewarding him with a start against Fulham on Saturday.

Spearing, however, will be frustrated that he is ineligible to play against his parent club and any further FA Cup matches having played for Bolton in the previous round against former club Liverpool.

Spearing is now the second player on loan at Blackburn from Bolton so will have a familiar face in defender Alex Baptiste when he arrives at Ewood Park.
