Middlesbrough defender Rhys Williams had admitted he would be interested in a move to Bolton in the summer.

Williams, who can play in both defence and midfield, has impressed for the Championship side this season and spent time with Trotters boss Owen Coyle during a loan spell at Burnley in 2009.

David Wheater swapped the Riverside for the Reebok Stadium in January and Williams believes he would be 'silly' to ignore the call of Coyle if Bolton make an offer at the end of the campaign.

"If a Premier League club comes in for me, of course I'd have to be keen to listen to what they have to say," he told Australian Four-Four-Two.

"I've never played in the Premiership and it's always been my dream.

"I've heard nothing from either Middlesbrough or Bolton but I've seen what's been in the papers and if the chance came to make a move to Bolton I'd have to be silly not to be interested.

"I know Owen Coyle well and I have a lot of respect for him.

"I like the way he operates as a coach and the style of football his teams play and he knows and understands me well as a player.

"If the right move comes along and it's right for the club, myself and my career then it'd be the way forward.

"My future lies in the hands of Middlesbrough Football Club. Whether they want to keep me or sell me, it's their choice and time will tell.

"I don't know how true everything is right now. I'm not even sure if the club have said anything because they haven't spoken to me about anything.

"Time will tell, if it's true then obviously I'm delighted for people to be interested in me."
