Nottingham Forest and Fulham Chase Wanderers Captain Mills

The exit door grows ever closer for our beardy defender

Get West London is reporting that Bolton Wanderers and Instagram's own Matt Mills has been discussing a free transfer move to either Nottingham Forest or Fulham.

Mills, who joined the Super Whites for £2m in 2012, is believed to be on the brink of cutting ties with the club in the hope of improving his reported £18,000 a week salary.

He almost joined the London side on loan after Christmas, but such was his initial form under Neil Lennon that the ex-Celtic boss was reluctant to let him go. Mills' dreadful form in the last three months however has seemingly softened the manager's position on the player.

Despite publicly making efforts to keep the Leicester-born centre half, Wanderers could, in my opinion, afford to let him go - especially if it frees up cash to keep the likes of Adam Bogdan and Darren Pratley at the club ahead of the 2015/16 Championship season which will be here before we know it.
