JAY Spearing has been told he can find a new club after Wanderers refused to stump up a £100,000 contract clause on his next appearance.

The former club skipper – who trained as normal at the Macron yesterday – will be made available for loan until the end of the season after his former club Liverpool refused to waive the fee until the summer.

The request to delay the payment stands. And should the Premier League club relent, Spearing would be clear to play again this season.

Wanderers’ new ownership are looking to cut costs early and could send other senior players out on loan before the end of the season as they prepare for life in League One.

Interim manager Jimmy Phillips admitted yesterday: “I don’t think we will be seeing Jay Spearing in a Bolton shirt again this season.

Wanderers head to Bristol City this weekend looking for their first away win since last Easter.

“I have never been involved in a side that has gone an entire season without winning away from home – so I want to put that right,” said Phillips.
