Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has confirmed defender David Wheater is on the verge of sealing his return to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, was left out of the side for Saturday's FA Cup defeat by Burton because he is in talks over a move, with Bolton believed to be his destination.

"Things are happening. It wasn't about avoiding him being cup-tied, he wasn't available due to things that might be happening behind the scenes," said Mowbray.

"Having said that, if another club wants to buy him lots of things have to be agreed first with the player and the two clubs, so he may yet be playing for us next Saturday.

"It might become more evident over the next few days."
