Wigan Athletic could be about to make a move for their FOURTH Honduras international in the space of two years with Deportivo Olimpia right back Johnny Palacios believed to be a target for Latics boss Roberto Martinez.
With Hendry Thomas signing in this week to join compatriot Maynor Figueroa at the DW Stadium it is evident that the link to Honduras is far deeper at the Latics than just previous manager Steve Bruce, now it is emerging that Martinez wants to use the connection to secure the services of Johnny Palacios.
Palacios is a name that excites Wigan fans due to the success of former star Wilson Palacios, who left the club in January to join Spurs for £14 million, Johnny is Wilson`s younger brother and at 22 he is regarded as one of Honduras` hottest properties.
Johnny Palacios starred in the Honduras Olympic side during their qualification for and participation in last years Beijing Olympics and he has since made a successful transition to the full national side in their attempts to qualify for next years World Cup finals in South Africa.
With the Latics having just one right back at the club, Mario Melchiot, who is entering the last year of his contract it would be prudent and make great footballing sense to secure one of World Footballs highly promising players in this position and Roberto Martinez is keen to tie up a deal with what seems like Wigan Athletic sister club, Deportivo Olimpia of Honduras, in bringing a second Palacios and fourth Honduran to the DW Stadium.
