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Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below: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.

  • Tue, 24 Aug 2021 13:40:12 +0000: Wigan warn League One clubs will be charged if James McClean is abused - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian
    • McClean subjected to sectarian abuse during his career
    • Wigan send letter to other clubs after re-signing winger

    Wigan Athletic have written to their League One rivals to warn clubs that the Football Association will charge them if the Republic of Ireland international James McClean is subjected to sectarian abuse in their stadium.

    Wigan, whom McClean rejoined last week, sent a letter to clubs on Monday advising them to “consider putting plans in place to respond to any inappropriate or unlawful chanting”. It is a proactive move by Wigan, for whom McClean played previously between 2013 and 2015.

  • Fri, 13 Aug 2021 18:00:16 +0000: Relief replaced by optimism at Wigan after perils of administration | Ben Fisher - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    The League One club narrowly avoided relegation last season but the outlook is dramatically different after a major overhaul

    After avoiding relegation to League Two in the penultimate game of last season, there was an outpouring of relief among Wigan Athletic’s players and staff, a little respite after the slog of administration. On Saturday the atmosphere inside the DW Stadium against Rotherham promises to be equally supercharged, not only because it is their first home game with supporters for 17 months but because Abdulrahman al-Jasmi, whose consortium took ownership of the club in March, is in town to take in his first live match.

    After that game at Hull in May, a defeat that felt like a victory, Jasmi outlined his vision on a video call along with the Wigan chairman, Talal al-Hammad, and congratulated a team propped up by academy youngsters and players on short-term deals on achieving survival. The squad gathered by a big screen and Leam Richardson, the manager, and Jamie Jones, the club captain, expressed their gratitude to the owners. “They were saying: ‘Well done for staying up,’ but we wanted to say thank you back because they kept us alive, really,” says the Wigan forward Callum Lang.
