Matt Mills: he can also execute high fives.

The hands-down most irritating saga in Bolton's still young transfer season looks to finally actually be coming to an end. Just about two weeks ago, we reported that the Matt Mills deal was close to being finalised. A week later, it was in doubt again, due to financial complications between Mills and Leicester City. Last week, it was on again and expected to be announced that day. Finally, it seems as though the deal is actually close to a conclusion, and should be finalised within the next 48 hours.

The 25 year old centre back has already completed his Bolton medical, and agreed terms with the club. However, his relationship with Leicester City has been less than smooth, and ironing out the details on that end is what has put so many spanners in the works. Mills has reportedly been seeking money owed to him and a representative. He hasn't made an appearance for the Foxes since February 14th, supposedly due to a falling out with new manager, Nigel Pearson.

The loan is expected to look towards a permanent deal next summer, if all goes well. Mills has a good pedigree in the Championship, having captained Reading to their promotion playoff final in 2011. His move to Leicester City is rumoured to have broken their previous £5mil record transfer, and he was also made captain of that side. He looks to be a good addition to a central defense that struggled even before the departure of Gary Cahill last January. But what do you think about the Mills saga?
