BOLTON right-back Tyrone Mears has opted to fight for his place at the Reebok Stadium after Millwall enquired about signing him on loan.

Reports claimed a deal to bring Mears to The Den for the season had been agreed, but talks never reached an advanced stage after the 30-year-old snubbed the Lions' initial interest.

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman confirmed: "Millwall enquired about him. Tyrone needs to play more first team football and I explained exactly the same story to him.

"Between me and Ty, we decided it wasn't the best move for him. He won't be taking up that option and he's decided to stay and fight for his place. I'm happy with that."

Millwall manager Steve Lomas remains in the market for a right-back, but trialist Gianni Zuiverloon has failed to earn a contract whilst Frazer Richardson's drawn-out move to Middlesbrough now looks set to go through.

    Probably just as well. A 30yr old on loan would need replacing sooner rather than later.
    Good to see we're still looking though.

    There are little things about Freedman and the way he phrases certain things that really annoy me. Bolton are way to optimistic imo with regards to them thinking they are going up. Yes they finished well last season but personally I can't see it.

      I doubt this affects the Shorey situation as he is a LB and they are looking for a RB. I see a premier league loan coming over the horizon. @Barnlion:
