Ali Al-Habsi The First In?






Wigan Athletic could be set to make their first signing of the summer this week, but it will be a familiar face that will be putting pen to paper as Roberto Martinez looks set to seal the capture of keeper Ali Al-Habsi from Bolton Wanderers.

Latics chairman Dave Whelan has backed the decision by boss Roberto Martinez to stay at the DW Stadium by sanctioning a 4 million deal for Al-Habsi, who spent a successful season on loan at Wigan claiming the player of the season award for 2010/11.

Bolton have rejected two previous bids from the Latics for Al-Habsi, but the latest of 4 million plus add-ons looks to have clinched the deal and the Oman international could be a Wigan Athletic player by next weekend when he returns to the UK from the Gulf where he is currently visiting family.

Aye, I thought it would be 3.5/4mill in the end.

That said plus add on's will most likely end up at the 5 million Bolton wanted in the first place.
