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Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below: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

- Administrators had been negotiating takeover since September
- Club say accepting offer would have led to 15-point deduction
Wigan Athletic’s prospective takeover is off, with the League One club claiming that the Spanish bidders reduced their offer by almost 50%.
An offer fronted by the Leganes owner, Felipe Moreno, was accepted by the club’s administrators in September but the process had dragged on until Tuesday morning, when an official club statement revealed the news.

A Spanish investor has agreed to buy Wigan Athletic out of administration and paid “a substantial deposit”, the League One club’s administrators have announced.

- Offers over £2m wanted for team, stadium and training ground
The administrators trying to find a buyer for Wigan Athletic fear the club could become the next Macclesfield, because of the difficulty of finding willing investors during the pandemic.
Covid-19 was cited by Wigan’s Hong Kong owners as the reason for pulling the plug in the first place, plunging the club into administration and triggering a 12-point deduction that saw them relegated into League One, and Paul Stanley of the corporate recovery specialists Begbies Traynor admits that selling an empty stadium is a much harder task than dealing with a football sale in normal circumstances.

Peterborough and Sunderland hope to put last season behind them, Oxford and Portsmouth also look contenders but Wigan’s and Hull’s struggles seem set to continue
It is fair to say Peterborough were miffed when they were bumped out of the play-offs on points per game – “this is the worst day of my life because I think we’ve been cheated” said a typically understated Barry Fry, the director of football – but they will have a chance if they can carry on where they left off. The division’s most prolific side won seven of their last nine matches, scoring four times in four of those and overcoming promoted Wycombe and Rotherham along the way. The £6m sale of top-scorer Ivan Toney was inevitable but the return of Jonson Clarke-Harris from Bristol Rovers, coupled with the emergence of Ricky Jade-Jones, 17, and Flynn Clarke, 20, gives Posh reasons to be cheerful.

Fulham have made their first signing since winning promotion to the Premier League, buying Antonee Robinson from Wigan Athletic for £1.9m.
