Case for the defence! Newcastle, Blackburn and Bolton all want Wolves' Berra

Wolves defender Christophe Berra is attracting interest from Newcastle, Blackburn and Bolton.

Newcastle have been rebuffed in their efforts to sign James Tomkins from West Ham, while Bolton, who hope to wrap up a 2.5m deal for NY Red Bulls’ Tim Ream, are considering whether to add another defender to replace Chelsea-bound Gary Cahill.

Blackburn manager Steve Kean is also on the look-out for a new centre half with Chris Samba set to leave.
