David Wheater linked to Middlesbrough... again despite Mowbray saying "no dice"

Tony Marshall

A new (maybe republished because this is not at all a new thing, like, not even close) report from Sky Sports has linked David Wheater with a return to his former club, Middlesbrough. The Teessiders are apparently on the cusp of selling defender Rhys Williams (another target of Owen Coyle's at Bolton Wanderers), to Wigan Athletic in a bid to bolster their spending options. Boro are also on the verge of buying Sporting Kansas City's Kei Kamara for a reported $2.1 million.

The report from Sky Sports says that Boro have contacted Bolton Wanderers about Wheater's availability after a poor start to the season (much like everyone else in the team). It's been all quiet on the transfer front for Bolton Wanderers on this deadline day with Dougie Freedman needing to sell to buy. The ever-reliable Alan Nixon (take that for what you will) has said that Zat Knight, Matt Mills, and David Ngog are on the manager's shortlist of players to sell.

As mentioned earlier, this is not something that is at all new. The link was a thing that first happened in June with Boro manager Tony Mowbray saying that there was nothing in it.

With just a few hours to go, fans hope the business is about to go into overdrive.
