Lukas Jutkiewicz: Will see out the season on loan at Bolton

The 24-year-old striker has joined the Trotters from Sky Bet Championship rivals Middlesbrough on an agreement which will take him through to the end of the season.

There has been no indication from Boro that his days at the Riverside Stadium are over, with there still two years left to run on his contract in the north east.

Jutkiewicz is, however, eager to play his football where he feels most comfortable and believes he has found a 'better fit' at the Reebok Stadium.

He told the Bolton Evening News: "I have not had any talks yet - I leave the talking to everyone else, to be honest.

"But I am enjoying it here and would love to stay here for longer than my loan period.

"Straight away I felt comfortable at Bolton and it feels like a good place for me. I would really like to organise something that will allow me to stay for longer.

"I am here until the end of the season so hopefully we can sort something out to make it go longer.

"It's a strange one and sometimes things don't work out for whatever reason at some places. It just seems to be a better fit here.

"But I have had numerous Middlesbrough fans writing on Twitter about it. They have been really supportive."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
