Latics Scouting in France

Wigan Athletic manager Steve Bruce has admitted that the club are actively scouting a player in France with Chris Casper and more recently John Benson taking in games.

Bruce to the Wigan press today:

'We are actively looking. We had Chris Casper, the former Bury manager who is doing some scouting for us at the moment, watching a couple of games in France at the weekend.

'And John Benson was in France too looking at players.

'I know every player inside out in the Premier League and would not be doing my job if I didn't know the Championship either.

'But getting a good young player out of clubs here is difficult, so we have to looking at the foreign market.

'That is a realistic place to find players, you've got the attraction of the Premier League to offer them.'

It is believed that Le Mans Benin International Stephane Sessegnon is the player that has been identified as a possible target for summer recruiting

The 23 year old midfielder is a regular in the French side and would be seen as an ideal replacement for Denny Landzaat and a good addition to the Latics squad
