Bolton seal 25m David Wheater deal

Last updated : 20 January 2011 By Daily Mail

Bolton have completed their £2.5million swoop to sign Middlesbrough defender David Wheater.

The highly-rated centre back was available at the bargain price with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle wasted not time in bringing him to the Reebok Stadium on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Wheater said: 'I met with the manager and we had a good chat about football. I had a look around the facilities and it was a really easy decision to make.

'From what I've seen there is a really great atmosphere at the club and a real buzz about the place and I'm looking forward to working hard and showing the manager what I can do.'

The 23-year-old is yet to win his first England cap despite being called up for the squad on a number of occasions.

Wheater has plenty of Premier League experience with Middlesbrough before they were relegated in 2009.
