David Wheater: Linked with return to Middlesbrough

Boro are understood to have made contact with the Trotters about the prospect of re-signing Wheater, who they sold to Bolton in 2011.

The Teessider has played just 35 games since his switch and a move back to his hometown club is likely to appeal.

Middlesbrough have prioritised bolstering their attacking options, but they are also looking at adding a new defender.

Boro are also aware that Wigan are hovering around their captain Rhys Williams and are believed to have snubbed an approach from the Latics.

A deal for the Australian cannot be ruled out, so Boro know that they cannot be left short and are now monitoring Wheater's situation.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
