Ryo Miyaichi: Has had ankle injury

Wigan are in line for a triple FA Cup boost with Ryo Miyaichi joining new-boys Angelo Henriquez and Roger Espinoza in contention to face Bournemouth on Saturday.

Henriquez's loan move from Manchester United was confirmed on Wednesday morning, while Espinoza has already joined fellow Honduras Olympic star Maynor Figueroa at the Latics.

And manager Roberto Martinez has also confirmed Miyaichi, who has endured a difficult time since arriving on loan from Arsenal in the summer, could make his long-awaited comeback from an ankle injury against the League One outfit.

"Ryo has a chance for the FA Cup game," said Martinez.

"He is 80% of his full fitness and is joining the main group this week.

"We hope he is going to be back very soon."

The 20-year-old has made just six appearances, and only one start, since his arrival from the Gunners.

He has been limited to just 20 minutes as a substitute since the Premier League defeat to Sunderland on September 29.

Meanwhile, Martinez declared himself delighted with Henriquez's arrival.

Although the 18-year-old has already made his full debut for Chile and arrived at United to something of a fanfare, he was not involved in the club's short Capital One Cup campaign as had been anticipated.

However, Martinez knows all about Henriquez's exploits with Universidad in Chile and in the teenager's fellow countryman Jean Beausejour has the ideal guide.

"We're really excited about Angelo because he is a very young man with a huge potential," said Martinez.

"He is a goalscorer with clever movement inside the box and has had a very successful time with his former club Universidad.

"We hope to have a good partnership in terms of allowing Angelo to develop as a footballer and learn of the demands of the English game, because I feel he can bring us something different in the forward line.

"Saturday will provide him with the perfect opportunity to begin his experiences on the pitch in English football."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
