Cahill England cap sees Bolton buyout clause jump

Gary Cahill's England appearance on Friday has only strengthened his future as a Bolton Wanderers player.

The Trotters defender, 24, made his long-awaited Three Lions bow on Friday when he came on for Michael Dawson against Bulgaria at Wembley.

And that cameo means that potential suitors will have to shell out a stonking £17.5million if they want to prise the centre-back from the Reebok.

Cahill signed a new deal with Wanderers a year ago that included a £15m escape clause, says The Sun.

But the contract small print means the asking price will be increased by £2.5m now he has been awarded his first cap by Fabio Capello.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs have all watched the former Aston Villa star regularly over the last two seasons.
