Bolton manager Owen Coyle says Gary Cahill is "absolutely" a part of his plans for Wednesday's Barclays Premier League trip to Everton as things stand.

Coyle confirmed last Friday that a fee - believed to be in the region of £7million - had been agreed with Chelsea for Trotters defender Cahill and talks have been ongoing with a view to completing the 26-year-old's proposed move to Stamford Bridge.

And asked whether Cahill was in his plans for the match at Goodison Park, Coyle said: "Absolutely."
