When it comes to choosing a Bolton Wanderers player of the year, it's ridiculously difficult to pick just one person.

Mark Beevers and Andy Taylor have truly been superb signings, whilst Filipe Morais has made a huge difference since his arrival at the start of February. The number of assists he's made in just a month is astounding.

Stalwarts Jay Spearing and David Wheater have put last season behind them and been consistently excellent all season.

I'm going to choose David Wheater. After years of inconsistency and injury, Wheater's performances from defence have been integral in getting Wanderers into the automatic places.

As well as that, Wheater's scored seven goals, which is a terrific number for a centre half.

Given the fact he came back after being released with something to prove, David Wheater has shown that he deserves all the praise given to him this season.

Wheater could have gone to a club in the Championship for a higher wage, but he didn't.

Phil Parkinson gave him a second chance with Wanderers, and Wheater has duly repaid the faith shown in him.

For those reasons, it's got to be David Wheater.
