Jay Spearing rejects Blackburn Rovers move, Wanderers watch through open door

David Rogers

The Jay Spearing to Blackburn Rovers move looks like it's off after the player reportedly turned down a deal from Bolton's rivals. Last week, Rovers agreed a £1.75 million (reportedly) fee with Liverpool for the midfielder's services and the Reds accepted the offer. Blackburn would have used money from the sale of Martin Olsson to Norwich City, which became official yesterday.

Per a report in the Bolton News, "sources close to" Spearing said that the player did not see Blackburn Rovers in his future with the midfielder hoping to stay in the Premier League. This also means that a deal for the player, from any team, will not be completed for some time, thus opening the door for Bolton Wanderers to potentially make a move. That door had shut earlier in the week when Dougie Freedman admitted that Wanderers were priced out of the player.

The vast majority of Bolton fans would want Jay Spearing back in the side but whether the team actually needs the midfielder back in its ranks is up for debate. Spearing made 39 appearances for Bolton Wanderers in all competitions last season, proving to be one of the few stable, high-performing options that the Trotters had in what was a challenging first third of the season.
