Bolton have announced they have taken up options to extend the contracts of David Wheater, Mark Beevers and Connor Hall.

With 22 players set to see their current deals expire on June 30 - and 13 confirmed departures - Wanderers boss Phil Parkinson is putting the building blocks in place as the club prepare for the start of the 2018/19 Championship campaign.

Wheater is the longest-serving player at Macron Stadium, having arrived in a £2.3million transfer from Middlesbrough in January 2011, and has made 202 appearances during his seven-and-a-half years at the club.

The 31-year-old has scored 17 goals in that time, nine of which came during the promotion-winning season of 2016/17 as Wanderers secured the runners-up position in League One.

Beevers has been a near ever-present since joining Bolton on a free transfer from Millwall in July 2016, having featured in 98 of a possible 104 games in his two seasons in the North West.

Hall, meanwhile, joined Wanderers from Sheffield United in July 2017 and scored 22 goals as the under-23 side won the Professional Development League National Title.

The 20-year-old made his senior debut as a late substitute in an FA Cup third-round defeat to Huddersfield Town in January, whilst also making it onto the bench on a further two occasions.

All three players have committed their futures to the club until the summer of 2019.
