Aljofree was actually signed for Bolton by Bruce Rioch, but he has failed to make an impact at the Reebok Stadium.

Appointed Sheffield Wednesday manager at the end of September 2004, Sturrock's first move was to bring Aljofree to Hillsborough on loan.

Aljofree returned to Plymouth but was loaned out again on 22nd March 2007 to Oldham until the end of the 2006/7 season. In June 2007, Hasney left Plymouth to sign for Swindon on a three year deal. Swindon manager Paul Sturrock was at Plymouth with Aljofree.
