BOLTON WANDERERS are on the trail of Alaves defender Oscar Tellez, but the giant stopper has revealed that he will not consider a move until the summer.
With Sam Allardyce keen to bolster his squad in order to prepare for a fight against relegation, a number of continental targets have been identified during the transfer window.
Tellez, who sprung to prominence during Alaves' superb Uefa Cup run in 2001, is out of contract in 2004, but admits he will consider his future at the end of the season.
"It only interests me that things are going well," he told planetfootball.com. "Already, we will speak in June of what will be, although I know there is a team after my signature."
Bolton despatched a representative in Valladolid to see Sunday's Liga encounter, which Alaves won 3-1.
The 28-year-old did not have one of his most impressive games, but he has been courted by Premiership sides for some time.
It is understood that he has an agreement to leave the Basque outfit if the financial conditions are right for all parties in the summer, after being with the club since 1999.
Tellez has been capped five times for Spain, and has played almost 150 games in the Spanish top-flight after spells with Valencia and Villarreal.
Allardyce could be keen to plunder the Spanish market again after signing Real Madrid's Ivan Campo last year.
Meanwhile, Wanderers have ended their interest in trialists Pierre-Yves Andre and Florent Laville.
