WANDERERS are close to completing a deal to sign Republic of Ireland Under-19 international Cian Bolger from Leicester City.

The rangy defender has yet to break into the Foxes first team ranks but has spent three spells on loan with Bristol Rovers in the last few seasons.

Bolger was subject to a failed bid from the League Two club earlier this month but is understood to have agreed terms over a move to the Reebok and could be confirmed in the next 24 hours.

Hamilton Academical midfielder Gary Fraser is also close to completing a move after undergoing a medical on Monday.
