Bolton Wanderers have struck a deal with Deportivo La Coruna for Cesar.Bolton Wanderers have struck a deal with Deportivo La Coruna for Cesar.
The Spain international is out of contract at the end of the season and could be on his way to The Reebok Stadium for the second half of the campaign.
Reports in Spain claim that Deportivo have accepted Bolton's proposal, with Cesar now needing to give his approval to the transfer.
The Trotters must now try to persuade the defender to accept the switch, after reports over the Christmas period suggested Cesar had already rejected a move to The Premiership.
In the past he has been linked with Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, but European hopefuls Bolton have been the first to strike a deal.
Trotters boss Sam Allardyce is looking to strengthen his back-line and the addition of Cesar would be a notable coup.
Depor are happy to send the centre half out on loan as it will ease their wage bill, with Cesar unlikely to sign a new deal.
A switch to The Premiership would also put Cesar in the shop window and boost his prospects of making Spain's squad for the World Cup finals.
The key is whether Bolton can talk the 28-year-old into heading to England as it was previously felt that he wanted to stay in his homeland.
