According to TEAMtalk, Bolton Wanderers are one of a number of clubs interested in Blackburn Rovers centre back Gordon Greer.

The article states:

"Blackburn Rovers are facing a battle to keep hold of veteran central defender Gordon Greer, TEAMtalk understands.

Rovers, who have just been relegated to League One, are keen for 36-year-old Greer to sign a new deal at Ewood.

However, a host of clubs from the Championship, League One and Scotland are keen on landing Greer, whose contract expires next month.

Ipswich, Burton, newly-promoted Bolton and Bradford are amongst a number of clubs keen to take the experienced Scottish international – who is also wanted back north of the border.

Neil Lennon’s Hibernian are looking at him as they think he could give them a real boost back in the top-flight, whilst Hearts and his former club Kilmarnock are also interested."

Former Brrighton captain Gordon Greer was on trial with Wanderers last Summer, but the Scotland international opted for a move to Ewood Park instead. Bolton re-signed David Wheater as a result. Greer played 25 times for Rovers last season, and couldn't prevent them from dropping down to League One.

Would Greer be a good signing? Let us know in the comments box below.
