Clubs In For Roberts

Clubs In For Roberts

Premiership clubs Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers and Charlton Athletic are all interested in signing Jason Roberts, as well as relegeated Birmingham City, according to our old friend, agent Willie McKay.

McKay told Sky Sports: 'There have been three different offers from Besiktas, but they have been rejected by Wigan. Jason is away on holiday at the minute, but he is keen to speak to Besiktas to see what is on offer. He is looking to get the okay from Wigan to allow him to talk to them.

'I am aware of the interest from Birmingham but as far as we know there has been no offer. There has been a lot of talk but nothing has been done. I believe Aston Villa, Charlton and Blackburn are also keeping tabs on him.

'Obviously Wigan are looking to bring in a new striker and Jason feels he might have to go. He has been a good servant to Wigan and hopes they will let him go rather than move him on where they will get the most money. Jason wants his future sorted out as soon as possible.'

Hopefully he goes to Besiktas, but Wigan really need some quality players in to survive next season

Look at the banner at the top of this site. Bullard's gone, Chimbonda and Roberts are on the way. Filan could be number 3 keeper next year and so may leave. That only leaves PJ and it would be a disaster if he left. Please don't put any players on next year!

Willie McKay ??? I wouldn't trust that man any further than i could see him. He's one of the reasons that the bung inquiry is going on (allegedly).

He's a slimey little agent that deserves to be cattle prodded but if he brings Camara to Pompey then slime away little man.

Sheffield United v Latics - Big Game Preview

Latics head over the Pennines this afternoon to face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

It is only three weeks since the sides last met, on that occasion we allowed the Blades to come back from three goals down to claim a share of the spoils, hopefully lessons learned that day will help us to see this game out.

Under Nigel Adkins Sheff United haven't had the season that they were hoping for, hovering outside the playoff spots for most of the campaign so far they will be hoping to ma
