BOLTON boss Dougie Freed­man ad­mits Jay Spear­ing was his top sum­mer trans­fer tar­get af­ter snap­ping up the mid­fielder from Liver­pool.

The 24-year-old won Wan­der­ers’ player of the year award last sea­son af­ter im­press­ing on loan and has signed a per­ma­nent fouryear deal.

“Jay was my top tar­get,” said Freed­man. “He's got the po­ten­tial to be a very, very good player.

“What I like is that he comes in ev­ery day with the at­ti­tude to get bet­ter.

“That's what struck me about Jay – not only was he a fan­tas­tic football player with a great pedi­gree com­ing from Liver­pool, but his hunger and de­sire to get bet­ter re­ally stood out to me.”
