The Latest Wigan FC Transfer News

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has been on the look out for new signings for many positions for his squad as he looks to bolster his options for the new up coming premier league season. Martinex has a number of players on his radar who he feels would benefit the squad and talks continue with many clubs over bringing in the players he needs for the new season.

One of the top targets for the manager this summer is highly rated Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste who has been in stunning for for his current club all of last season. The 26 year old is highly regarded by Martinez and now the manager is in discussions with the northern club to bring the player to the DW Stadium ready for the start of the season although Blackpool have been coy on releasing any details of the deal.

Great news for Wigan fans right now is that the club have rebuffed a third bid from Chelsea to take flying winger Victor Moses to Stamford Bridge with the club holding firm to the fact that any club wishing to sign the winger will need to table an offer of the clubs valuation of the player. This may cool interest in the player from the European champions as Roberto DiMatteo will not be forced into playing over the odds for the player and may find himself looking elsewhere for new additions to his squad.

Aberdeen superstar Fraser Fyvie could be a player on his way to the DW this summer after the club stepped up interest in the player after finding out the players contract with his current club is due to end in December with no new deal set to take place. Martinez has long been an admirer of the player and sees him as the perfect addition to his squad for the up coming season so talks continue about bringing him down to the premier league outfit.

Wigan old boy Hugo Rodallega who left the club after they decided not to renew his contract at the end of the season looks all set to join Fulham on a free transfer. The player found it increasingly hard to nail down a regular spot at Wigan and was told just before the end of the season that he no longer was in Martinez plans for the club and thus he is now looking all set to join the Cottagers any time soon.

  • Wed, 23 Oct 2019 22:09:09 +0000: Championship roundup: Brownhill’s Bristol City late show sinks Charlton - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    • Josh Brownhill sends 10-man City fourth in stoppage time
    • Aleksandar Mitrovic scores hat-trick as Fulham beat Luton 3-2

    Bristol City came from behind to beat Charlton 2-1 thanks to a Josh Brownhill stoppage-time winner in a thriller at Ashton Gate. The midfielder raced on to a long ball through the middle before firing past Dillon Phillips in the eighth minute of added time. The win moves Lee Johnson’s side fourth.

    Charlton had taken a 65th-minute lead when Macauley Bonne coolly slotted into an empty net. Substitute Famara Diedhiou levelled 10 minutes later, but he was then shown an 86th-minute red card.

    • Assombalonga sinks Wigan; Derby slip against Bristol City
    • Sheffield Wednesday go top with win against Luton

    Jonathan Woodgate said Middlesbrough remain “a work in progress” despite his first win as head coach against Wigan.

    Britt Assombalonga’s 23rd-minute header was enough to seal Woodgate’s first three points since succeeding Tony Pulis in the summer. But the Middlesbrough manager, knowing his team were far from convincing, does not want anyone to get carried away and has warned that there will be peaks and troughs throughout his first season in charge.

  • Tue, 20 Aug 2019 11:41:17 +0000: The Dutch model of developing young footballers: let them sink or swim - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    The best teenagers at Ajax, PSV, AZ and Utrecht do not play in a youth league. They face men in the country’s second division

    By Gavin Willacy for Playing in the Shadows

    Despite Ajax going desperately close to reaching the Champions League final, the Eredivisie seems to be out of fashion with Premier League recruiters. Only two players moved from the Dutch league to the Premier League this summer. Coincidentally, they went to last season’s top two, with Manchester City paying PSV £5.3m for Angeliño and Liverpool signing 17-year-old Sepp van den Berg from Zwolle for £4.4m. In contrast, six players arrived from Belgium at a cost of £98m.

    Below the top six clubs in the Eredivisie, budgets are small, ranging from €7m to €17m, similar to clubs towards the top of League 1 and bottom of the Championship. The Eredivisie has been a source of talent in the past. Dennis Bergkamp, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Luis Suárez were all top scorers in the league before lighting up the Premier League. And both Romário and Ronaldo won the golden boot in the Netherlands as they made the move to European football.

    • Coventry get result at St Andrew’s, Salford get maiden win

    Neil Warnock’s Cardiff returned to the division with a 3-2 defeat at Wigan. Joe Ralls’ expert finish put the Bluebirds into a 20th minute lead before Wigan’s Josh Windass missed a penalt. Undeterred, Wigan equalised and then took the lead after goals from Michael Jacobs and Windass. Omar Bogle equalised against his former club, but Lee Evans’ whipped finish settled a hugely entertaining match. Fulham also came back to the Championship with a bump, losing 1-0 to Barnsley at Oakwell.

  • Wed, 31 Jul 2019 10:00:40 +0000: Championship 2019-20 season preview - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian
    Fulham could bounce straight back with their four-man attack while Leeds are sure to be in the promotion mix and Neil Warnock’s Cardiff are not to be ignored

    There may not be an overwhelming favourite for automatic promotion but certain teams appear streets ahead in the firepower stakes. None more so than Fulham, who will likely start with an attacking diamond of Aleksandar Mitrovic, a Premier League striker in all but name, Anthony Knockaert, Ivan Cavaleiro and Tom Cairney, a player capable of running games in this division. Fulham deservedly took flak for their lavish and directionless spending last summer but it is impossible to ignore their latest business. They were, though, a soft touch in defence last season, so Scott Parker still has plenty to address, and the expectation will prove a test of his credentials.
