Bolton Wanderers want to sign Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey on-loan in January.

The 19-year-old has failed to hold down a regular place in the first-team since his move from Charlton in 2010.

It is believed the Reds are happy for the England U21 international to go on a temporary deal to get him more experience and confidence of playing in the Premier League.

The Trotters, under boss Owen Coyle, have a good history of taking young talent and improving them.

Two years ago Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere was transformed by his five months at the Reebok, while last year Chelsea sent Daniel Sturridge to Bolton and are now reaping the rewards.

Shelvey has made only 22 appearances for Liverpool since joining the club amid expectations that he could be the next Steven Gerrard.

But following manager Kenny Dalglish’s summer spending spree, Shelvey is now competing for a place with Lucas, Jay Spearing, Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson and Gerrard.

A move will be beneficial for both sides with Bolton short of midfield cover following the injury of Chung-Yong Lee.
