Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that the Latics are attempting to sign Honduras international Roger Espinoza who will be a free agent come 1st January 2013.
Espinoza has been quoted in quite a few media outlets stating that he is all set to join the Latics on a 2 ½ year deal, but today is the first time that Martinez has spoken to the press about his desire to bring the 26 year old in
Speaking to the Wigan Evening Post Martinez said: 'We're working really hard to try to make it happen and we're looking forward to seeing if we can get that one done successfully.
'There are a few steps: there is the work permit, there are certain aspects we need to fulfil in the paperwork but Roger is a player that we've been following for a long, long time.
"We've seen him enjoying his football in the Olympic Games recently with Honduras, and in the World Cup as well he's been an important part of that group of players with (Wigan defender) Maynor Figueroa. He would be a real asset for us.
'But until January 1 we can't do anymore than wait and make sure we prepare ourselves for the steps we've got ahead to make him a Wigan Athletic player.'
