Middlesbrough: Wheater closer to Bolton Wanderers move

Middlesbrough defender David Wheater could be edging closer to a move to Bolton.

Wheater's proposed return to the Barclays Premier League appeared to have stalled at the weekend.

However, the clubs have continued to try to thrash out the financial details for the 2.5million-rated player.

Middlesbrough coach Mark Proctor told the Evening Gazette: "It is ongoing. I do think it is a little bit further forward."

Bolton manager Owen Coyle is keen to bolster his defence after allowing

Andy O'Brien to join Leeds.

Full stretch: Rob Green has been ever-present for Leeds in the Championship this term.
