Osasuna are resigned to losing Riera after revealing they were in talks with an unnamed club about a deal for the forward.

It is now understood that Wigan are the mystery club chasing Riera, with talks at an advanced stage between all parties.

Riera, who came through the Barcelona youth ranks, impressed for Osasuna last season finishing as the club's top scorer with 13 goals, including two goals in a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid.

A number of clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in Riera, but Wigan are hopeful of luring the 27-year-old to the DW Stadium.

Wigan boss Uwe Rosler is keen to bolster his attacking options next season and sees Riera as a key addition to his plans as he aims to build a side capable of winning promotion back to the Premier League.

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.
