Jay Spearing was Bolton boss Dougie Freedman's top target

Bolton manager Dougie Freedman tells BBC North West Tonight that Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing was his top summer transfer target.

Spearing joined Wanderers for an undisclosed fee on Friday after a successful loan spell at the Reebok Stadium last season.

Freedman adds that the 24-year-old has a "hunger and desire" to improve, which convinced him to sign the player on a permanent basis.
