Deportivo La Coruna are on the brink of signing Bolton Wanderers midfielder Christian Wilhelmsson.

The Swede's parent club, Nantes, have given the green light for the deal and a Deportivo spokesman said this morning: "We are very close to signing him, it can be ready today or tomorrow.

"He is suitable for the team, because we need to strengthen the right side, and he is fast, and with the technical expertise necessary."
