Wheater extends Bolton Wanderers deal

21 July 2013 17:25

David Wheater has signed a new three-year deal with Bolton Wanderers, the Championship side have confirmed.

The 26-year-old joined Bolton from hometown club Middlesbrough in January 2011 and has made 45 appearances since his arrival, with the majority of those coming in the Premier League.

The centre-back's participation in the 2012-13 campaign was restricted to just four brief substitute appearances, however, after he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in May of last year.

But, having proved his fitness in pre-season training, Wheater has expressed delight at earning a new contract.

"I'm very happy to have signed," he told the club's official website.

"I believe we have a real chance to move forward this season and the manager is certainly the right man for us. I also believe he can help get the best out of me as a player.

"I'm also very happy living in the area and have made lots of new friends since moving here from Middlesbrough."

Wheater has represented England at every youth level up to Under-21s, but has yet to make a senior appearance despite having previously been named as part of squads.
