Wigan boss Roberto Martinez believes Roger Espinoza will prove a huge asset to the Latics after confirming a deal for the Sporting Kansas City player is close to being completed.

The 26-year-old has long been linked with a move to the DW Stadium and is set to swap Major League Soccer for the Barclays Premier League when his MLS contract expires at the end of this month.

Martinez said: "We're working really hard to try to make it happen and we're looking forward to seeing if we can get that one done successfully."
