Wheater Signs For Bolton

Middlesbrough defender David Wheater has finally signed for Bolton after Bolton had agreed a fee in the region of £2.4m for the centre-back.

Wheater will be seen as a replacement for the much sought after Gary Cahill, who has attracted considerable interest from the likes of Chelsea. Wheater has been in fine form for Boro this season and is a graduate from the well-known
Middlesbrough academy.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle was chuffed with the clubs new arrival –

“There has been a lot of competition for his signature and again this shows a willingness on our behalf to invest in youth,” said Bolton boss Owen Coyle.

“We have parted with good money for a very talented player who has been involved with England squads before.”

Coyle also went on to add that :

“We want him to be involved at that level again and to do that he will have to play well for Bolton Wanderers, however, he has arrived here with a real desire to achieve that.

“He has a great character as well. He will integrate into the group straight away and it all adds to the fantastic spirit that we have within the squad.”

All in all it’s a great signing for Bolton Wanderers and Wheater will be a fantastic replacement for Andy O’Brien who recently left the Trotters to join high flying Leeds in the Championship.
