Express and Star has reported that Gary Cahill has decided to move to Bolton Wanderers instead of Birmingham City from Aston Villa. The defender has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the relegation threatened club but says that he is happy to have left the Midlands.
It is the right move for me to come to Bolton. I had a look around their set-up and met with the manager and chairman, and I was impressed with what I saw and heard.
The transfer fee is believed to be around £5million and the 22-year old is also said to have rejected an offer from Birmingham City. Cahill is a decent defender who could provide valuable shield for struggling Bolton at the back as the fight for survival in the English Premier League intensifies.
