Bolton boss Owen Coyle has thanked Gary Cahill for his contribution, after the England defender swapped the Reebok Stadium for Stamford Bridge.

Having agreed a fee for Cahill's signature some two weeks ago, it was only over the weekend that Chelsea were able to agree personal terms with the 26-year-old.

Cahill passed a medical with the club on Saturday morning, and was in the stands that afternoon to watch his new teammates narrowly defeat Sunderland.

Chelsea finally confirmed the transfer on Monday afternoon, and Cahill has reportedly put pen to paper on a five year contract.

Throughout the protracted process, Coyle cotinued to thank Cahill for his application and professionalism, and things were no different after the deal was completed.

"Gary has always been 100 percent professional and along with that he is a top-class person," Coyle told the official Bolton website.

"Everyone at Bolton Wanderers wishes Gary the very best for his future career at Stamford Bridge."

Cahill, meanwhile, took the opportunity to thank the Bolton for helping him to become an England regular.

"This is the right move for me at the right time and I would like to thank everyone at Bolton because I've had a great four years at the football club," he said.

"My spell with Wanderers has enabled me to break into the England squad, and I would particularly like to thank the fans for their support along the way. I always appreciated their backing."
