And we are going to release Jon Otsemobor on loan...

but will he play against us?....... or will he help Bolton pip us...


Liverpool defender Jon Otsemobor has agreed to join Bolton Wanderers on loan for the rest of the season.

Otsemobor made five appearances for the Reds this season before being replaced after the Manchester City clash over Christmas.

The 20 year old's loan deal runs until June 30, 2004.

He will not be eligible to play in the Carling Cup final next month as he has already appeared in the competition for Liverpool this season.

Bolton boss Sam Allardyce said: "The loan signing of Jon Otsemobor is an excellent capture for us. Jon is a mobile player who loves to push forward from the back. He has tremendous pace and an excellent passing game.

"We needed to strengthen our defensive unit and Jon will add competition for places in this vital area.

"He made his senior debut against Bolton in the Carling Cup this season and I thought he was their most influential player on the night."
