Mears move to Millwall off

Michael Steele

Late last night, a report from the Daily Mail stated that Bolton's Championship rivals, Millwall, were very interested in a deal to shore up their defense by bringing in Bolton right back Tyrone Mears. The deal would have seen Mears see out the rest of his Bolton Wanderers contract away from the Reebok. The defender's current contract runs out at the end of the season and Millwall were interested in a year-long loan deal.

In Dougie Freedman's first press conference of the season, the manager confirmed that the club had been approached by the Lions and that Mears was given permission to speak to Millwall manager Steve Lomas. Mears, second in the pecking order at Bolton, declined the move for what has been reported as "family reasons."

This is actually a bit of a saving grace for Bolton who would have been severely hurting for depth at right back with Joe Riley already set to miss the majority of the season with a knee injury.

Wanderers have already been busy today, confirming the signing of Andre Moritz and sending Marvin Sordell out on loan to Charlton Athletic with the season less than two days away.
