LIAM Trotter has joined Bolton on loan until the end of the season.
Millwall reluctantly allowed the midfielder to move to the Reebok Stadium on a temporary basis, even though they would have preferred a permanent deal.
Bolton also wanted to buy Trotter but could not come up with the funds in time. As a result, they have agreed to pay the Lions a six-figure fee in the summer.
Trotter made it clear to manager Ian Holloway that he wanted to move on, having rejected numerous contract offers over the past 18 months.
