Cahill signs for Bolton Wanderers

Posted by

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.

Cahill says:

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.
