Paul Jewell has resigned as Wigan manager less than 24 hours after keeping the club in the Premiership, according to reports.

Jewell´s side went into the final day of the season in the bottom three but survived following their 2-1 victory over Sheffield United - who were relegated.

Jewell celebrated with his players on the pitch at the JJB Stadium after David Unsworth´s penalty sealed the Latics´ place in the top flight, but he is now certain to be linked with a move to Manchester City, where current manager Stuart Pearce is under increasing pressure.
