Jay Spearing has returned to Liverpool to play for the Under-23 side while working with the club’s academy.

The 33-year-old, who made 55 appearances for the Reds between 2008 and 2013, is returning to Anfield nine years after leaving Bolton Wanderers.

The midfielder, who won the League Cup in 2012, has spent the last two seasons at Tranmere Rovers but left the League Two side earlier this summer.

Spearing’s main role at Liverpool will be that of full-time Under-18 manager, which has been coveted by the club’s academy manager Alex Inglethorpe.

Speaking of Club website, Inglethorpe was delighted to have secured Spearing’s services.

He said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Jay back to the academy and he will be working with the Under-18s as a full-time coach.

“Jay will work alongside Bridgey and Tim and will be actively involved on the training field with our young players.

“He will also be eligible for the Under-21s to give the young players experience when we need him.

“Jay is still quite young and the impact he can have on the U18s is invaluable because he is someone who lives and breathes this club.

“More importantly Jay has played in all four divisions so I think he will be a really good addition to us.”

Liverpool are the latest Premier League club to capitalize on the experience of professionals in the twilight of their careers.

Last year Manchester United brought back Paul McShane aged 35 to take up a similar position at Old Trafford.
