Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle wouldn't be surprised if Chelsea rival Andre Villas-Boas is keen on defender Gary Cahill.

Coyle struck up a friendship with AVB while doing their coaching badges together.

He would not be surprised if the Portuguese is on the phone in January to ask about defender Cahill.

Coyle said: "When you look at the players he has brought in, there is no doubt Gary is that type of player."
