Bolton Wanderers have bolstered their midfield options after signing Liverpool youngster Danny Guthrie on a season-long loan.
Guthrie, 20, tasted first-team action for the Reds during their Carling Cup campaign last season, before spending two months on loan at Championship side Southampton.
The Shrewsbury-born midfielder has also played in the Champions League, but has yet to start a Premier League match.
However, despite his lack of experience, Wanderers boss Sammy Lee believes the youngster - who was expected to return to the Saints on loan - can become an important part of his first-team squad during the next 12 months.
"Danny is a dynamic midfielder who is very comfortable on the ball," he told the club's official website.
"He has a tremendous work ethic and has got a great engine. He is a very good passer who will suit our type of football."
Lee has already signed former Aston Villa pair Jlloyd Samuel and Gavin McCann since replacing Sam Allardyce as Bolton boss towards the end of last season.
Meanwhile, overseas trio Blerim Dzemaili, Gerald Cid and Zoltan Harsanyi have already agreed moves to the Reebok Stadium.
