Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is making old boy Alan Harper a new 'signing' as a talent-spotter to land future British talent.
Hodgson has snapped up Harper from Bolton Wanderers and given him a senior role as a spy on his staff who will be told to find new players for the next window and beyond.
Harper played for Liverpool and Everton and his knowledge of domestic football will be an asset at the Kop where they have relied on recruiting foreign players in recent years.
Wanderers have let Harper go to Anfield, where he will be in a 'senior' position and will report directly to Hodgson as Liverpool try to improve their ability in earmarking talent for the first team.
