Bolton Wanderers and Hull City have become the latest Premier League clubs to show an interest in Wednesday’s highly-rated defender Mark Beevers, according to media reports.

The centre-back has already had almost every club from the top flight come and watch his progress in the blue and white, with Manchester United and Chelsea said to have sent scouts to watch him.

But now reports in the Sunday papers have revealed both Bolton and Hull City are ready to battle it out with offers worth around £2 million plus extras for the hot prospect in the January transfer window.

Beevers only broke into the Owls team last season but has become one of the first names down on the team sheet alongside captain Richard Wood at the heart of the Wednesday defence.

But Owls fans may not have to fear losing the Barnsley-born product, with The People reporting that Wednesday are in no rush to sell the 19-year-old, and that Beevers could yet pen another new deal to keep him at S6.
