Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is set to beat Portsmouth in the race for Liverpool wingman Jermaine Pennant who is available on a free transfer.
The former Birmingham player has been on loan at Portsmouth but it`s his connections with Bruce from their days together at St. Andrews` that will swing a deal the way of the Latics.
With Antonio Valencia off to Manchester United at the end of the season there is a massive void down the Latics right that needs to be filled and Bruce sees Pennant as just the man to do it.
Bruce stuck by Pennant during troubled times and the former England under 21 star hasn`t forgotten that, the deal should be tied up in the next few weeks.
It`s that time of year again when here at Vital Wigan when we ask you to vote for your Latics player of the season to see who`ll win the Latics Speyk Alf Craig Trophy
Last seasons award went to Mario Melchiot and season 2006/07 Emile Heskey.
To vote just click here then enter the player of your choice and your name or username, also place Player of the Season 2008/09 in the email subject
The closing date is Thursday 21st May 5pm BST
