Wigan move for Maloney

Published Add your comment

Wigan are in talks with Celtic about signing forward Shaun Maloney, chairman Dave Whelan has claimed.

The Scotland winger's first foray into English football did not turn out well after a disappointing spell with Aston Villa in 2007.

Maloney returned to Celtic in 2008 and signed a four-year deal but the club appear willing to sell him again, and Wigan told BBC Scotland: "Nothing concrete has happening as yet. We're still talking to the club. If we get things tied up with Celtic then he'll come down for a chat tomorrow."
