Boro snub £6m bid for Williams

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has been a long-term admirer of Williams

after he gave him his league debut during his time with

Burnley.

Boro have long insisted they have no desire or need to sell

their big names this month, but Bolton have now tried their luck

with Williams.

However, it is believed that Boro have been quick to tell Bolton

that Williams is not available.

Williams currently has 18 months left on his current deal at The

Riverside.
