Aaron Cresswell: Wanted by Wigan

Aaron Cresswell: Wanted by Wigan

The 23-year-old is rated very highly, but he is believed to be keen on a return to his North West roots.

Ipswich signed Cresswell from Tranmere in 2011 on a three-year deal and he has become a key performer after being the only player last season to play every minute for Town.

But relegated Wigan are looking to rebuild under Owen Coyle and are backing their new manager with funds, some of which he is hoping to use on Cresswell.

Sky Sports understands that Wigan are now lining up an approach and are hopeful of concluding a deal.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
