Jay Spearing says his Bolton future was taken out of his hands, whilst also admitting serving the club as captain was an 'honour'.

After five years with Wanderers, including an initial season-long loan deal from Liverpool, Spearing became a free agent when his contract expired at the end of June and fresh terms were unable to be agreed.

The 28-year-old remains without a club just one week ahead of the new EFL season and after facing questions over a proposed return to Macron Stadium, Spearing has declared it is time for both he and the club to move on.

Posting on his Instagram page, Spearing said: "Just like to put out to the Bolton fans and players over the last 5 years a massive thank you!!

"It was an honour and pleasure for myself and family to captain Bolton and be a part of getting promotion back into the Championship!

"Unfortunately things have been taken out of my hands but I would like to wish the lads and the fans all the best for the season ahead."
