The Argentine striker has endured a difficult stay with the Latics since arriving in a deal believed to be worth in excess of £6million in 2010 and is still waiting for his first Premier League goal.

The 27-year-old has been loaned out to Genoa and Estudiantes in that time and is now to return to Italy with Serie A side Palermo.

Martinez revealed that the deal had been finalised in his post-match press conference following Wigan's 1-0 win at Macclesfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

"We agreed a loan deal with Palermo and Mauro will go back to Italy where he had a spell with Genoa until the end of the season," said the Spaniard.

"That was done this morning and that is the reason why he wasn't in the squad."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
