The Latest Wigan FC Transfer News for 2021- 2022

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below: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

    • Gillingham, Doncaster and AFC Wimbledon all relegated

    Will Keane’s double sealed Wigan Athletic’s League One title as they recorded a 3-0 win at Shrewsbury.

    • Sunderland 1-1 Rotherham, Fleetwood 2-3 Sheffield Wednesday

    Wigan Athletic’s promotion champagne was dramatically put back on ice as Portsmouth completed a remarkable comeback to win 3-2 at Fratton Park.

    The League One leaders would have secured automatic promotion by avoiding defeat, and led 2-0 at half-time with goals from Callum Lang and Will Keane. But Pompey rallied, with George Hirst striking twice inside three second-half minutes before substitute Aiden O’Brien fired home an 87th-minute winner.

    • Dramatic Southampton comeback denies Coventry
    • McLean header gives Norwich battling victory at Wolves

    Ralph Hasenhuttl was left counting the cost of Southampton’s dramatic extra-time FA Cup win over Coventry. His side needed a fine Stuart Armstrong strike and a 112th-minute goal from Kyle Walker-Peters to seal a 2-1 victory, but the hosts lost defender Lyanco to a hamstring injury while striker Armando Broja had to be carried off.

    “It’s not good,” was Hasenhuttl’s verdict on the pair. “Lyanco’s injury is very serious. Broja’s is the top of the knee and we’ll have to look at how serious it is. In an FA Cup game you cannot really control what happens. They are always so tight and so tough, especially against a team as organised as Coventry.”
