The Scotland international has played just one match since the beginning of April due to a hip injury.

With Maynor Figueroa, Antolin Alcaraz and Ivan Ramis already sidelined, Caldwell's return will be a huge boost to Wigan's bid to beat the drop.

"All you can do when you're out of the team is keep working hard and being ready for when the opportunity arises again," Caldwell told the Wigan Evening Post.

"Everyone in this squad has a massive role to play between now and the end of the season.

"Everyone has to be ready for when the gaffer decides it's right to go in, and that's definitely the case with me."

The Latics are five points adrift of safety with four games remaining, but Caldwell insists the club have not given up hope.

"We're looking at every game between now and the end of the season as one we have to win, and we believe we can do that," he said.

"We've been down there and managed to get out of it for the last few years, and we're bracing ourselves for it going all the way again.

"It's in our hands, and we have to have a real belief that we can still get out of it."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
