Wigan Athletic - The Weeks Transfer News

Wigan Athletic - The Weeks Transfer News




Transfer news this week started brightly with Ali Al-Habsi coming in on a four year deal from Bolton, great to have our player of the season signed up on a permanent contract.

Adrian Colunga bid submitted according to several sources, the Getafe striker was a target for the Latics last season whilst he was at Recreativo de Huelva but a deal couldn't be worked out, now it looks like Martinez wants to bring Colunga to the DW Stadium at the 2nd time of asking.

Mauro Boselli made big noises in his home land of Argentina this week stating that he wants a return to his former club Estudiantes, the 2 cap international striker, who was a notable absentee from preseason training, claims that a deal is very close to completion.

James McCarthy was apparently the subject of a £9 million bid from Blackburn, ridiculous story, going to say no more about it.

Mike Pollitt put pen to paper on a new one year deal, the experienced goalkeeper said that it was 'never in any doubt' that he'd be staying.

Steven Caldwell joined Birmingham on a free transfer this week, good luck to the older of the Caldwell brothers, it should be a good move for him.

Rob Keirnan looks set to be given a contract, the 20 year old Watford defender is available on a free transfer and comes highly recommended by ex-Latics skipper Matt Jackson.

Hugo Rodallega whilst away on international duty with Colombia in the Copa America has told press that he`d be happy to stay at the Latics but that there is interest in him from Seville, Villarreal, Arsenal and Everton, we`ll see.

Shaun Wright-Phillips is still very much in Roberto Martinez's sights, with the boss stating on Friday that he'd love to have him at the club, should no more by the end of next week on this one.

Barcelona are apparently allowing one of their 18 year old (no name yet) reserve players to come to the Latics for a 12 month loan period.
