Wigan In The Hunt

Wigan In The Hunt

Lactics boss Steve Bruce has built up a squad of players at Wigan certainly capable of pushing for a European placed finish in the Premier league this season.

Wigan are currently in 7th place and with such a good start to the season, were always going to increase the focus on themselves and the squad in particular.

With Wilson Palacios looking more and more likely to be on his way out of the JJB in the January transfer window, Bruce has made Stephen Hunt one of his top priorities, as he searches for a replacement and more players to strengthen his squad.

The Irish winger has been subjected to rife transfer speculation since the Royals relegation from the Premiership last season and has always stated his desire to return to the top level.

However Reading, at the start of the transfer Window, were adamant that none of their first team players would be leaving the Berkshire based club but only this week, Royals first team coach Wally Downes, admitted that the club would listen to offers for their players. It seems that in the current economic climate everyone has a price. Go the green light....

Hunt has a reported £5m clause in his contract that allows him to talk to other clubs should they meet the requirement but ultimately it would be a Reading Football club decision if the player leaves.

As a Reading supporter I don't want Hunt to leave in January but at the same time, don't want a player who wants to be somewhere else.

I'm interested to find out what the Wigan fans think of the speculation, would you want Hunt at the JJB?

To be honest I don't want him to go but if he doesn't want to be @ RFC then they should sell him! £5m is a bargain!

Don't know about Hunt, but have heard a wee rumour that Everton and Mancity are both eyeing up Kevin Doyle with a view to signing him before Feb 2nd. City are rumoured to be offering Darius Vassell in part ex.
