David Cobeno: On the radar of Wigan

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is looking to bolster his goalkeeping options, with only Mike Pollitt providing back-up to No.1 Ali Al Habsi.

Martinez has been scouring the transfer market for a new keeper and Cobeno has come onto his radar.

The 30-year-old has found his first-team opportunities limited this season, making just eight appearances for the Primera Liga side.

The former Sevilla goalkeeper's contract at Rayo expires this summer and it is thought he could be allowed to leave on a free transfer this month.

Martinez has already brought in Honduras midfielder Roger Espinoza and Manchester United's on-loan striker Angelo Henriquez this month and he is now weighing up a move to bring Cobeno to the DW Stadium.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
