Southampton winger Steve De Ridder has joined Bolton on an initial one-month loan agreement.

Steve De Ridder: Only seven appearances for Southampton this season

The 25-year-old was one of the mainstays of Southampton's promotion campaign last season, but he has found first-team opportunites limited since the Saints entered the top flight.

The Belgian has been restricted to just seven appearances in all competitions this season, although he has featured in four games since the turn of the year.

De Ridder, who spent three years with Dutch side De Graafschap before moving to Southampton in the summer of 2011, becomes Dougie Freedman's fifth signing of the transfer window.
