At Anfield, Jermaine also had time with Portsmouth on loan, before leaving to join Spanish side Real Zaragoza.

Following a two-year spell in Spain, he returned to join Stoke City with another £2 million fee being paid for his services.

Jermaine also spent time with Wigan and Wolves before heading abroad to play in India and Singapore.

He recently returned to the UK, training with Bury for a number of weeks before being offered, and accepting a short-term deal with the club.

During his career, Jermaine has made over 360 appearances, scoring 22 goals.

Jermaine will take squad number 38 while with Bury, as they wait on International Clearance before he can wear his first Shakers shirt.
