Latics To Release Eight Players?
Wigan Athletic have released eight players according to the Premier League's retained list.
Steven Caldwell, Daniel De Ridder, Joe Holt, Jason Koumas, Danny Lambert, Thomas Oakes, Mike Pollitt and Abian Serrano.
It was expected that Koumas, De Ridder and Steven Caldwell would all be surplus to requirements but Joe Holt is a bit of a surprise as is Abian Serrano, both have featured for the reserves this season and I thought Holt was on the verge of following his close friend Callum McManaman into the 1st team squad.
Young Spanish midfield man Serrano joined the Latics two years ago along with his compatriot Roman Golobart, but obviously he hasn't made the same impact with the coaches, Mike Pollitt's release is also a surprise.
There was talk of 'Polly' getting another season to provide some experienced cover whilst continuing with his coaching badges
As of yet there has been no official announcement from the Latics and there is another two weeks of the players contracts left before they expire on the last day of June
