Liverpool full-back Jon Flanagan will spend the rest of the season on loan at Championship side Bolton.

The 25-year-old has represented England and was in the provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup, having helped the Reds finish as Premier League runners-up.

Flanagan has failed to kick on and, having spent last season on loan at Burnley and made just one Liverpool appearance this term, made a deadline-day move to Bolton for the remainder of the campaign.

Earlier this month the full-back was ordered to carry out 40 hours of unpaid work and given a 12-month community order for slamming his girlfriend against a wall before kicking her.

Liverpool confirmed he would face internal disciplinary action after being sentenced for assault.

A spokesman added: “We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the player’s actions during the events that took place, resulting in this criminal conviction.

“It leaves his own reputation damaged and, through association, he has severely let down the club he had previously represented with distinction.

“We have expressed to him our disappointment and anger that he has failed to live up to the values of Liverpool Football Club, in this specific instance.”

Meanwhile, Zach Clough has returned to Bolton on loan from Nottingham Forest for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old swapped the Macron Stadium for the City Ground last January in a deal worth a reported £3million.

Clough has now rejoined a club he came through the ranks at having been on the books from the age of eight.

Tyler Walker also joined on loan from Forest on deadline day.
