Wigan have stressed they have only made an "informal enquiry" about Bristol City's Nicky Maynard and not an official bid.

The wheels appeared to be in motion regarding Maynard's potential move to the DW Stadium when a statement on the City website said the npower Championship outfit had given the Latics permission to speak to the 25-year-old, adding that "discussions to finalise a transfer fee with the Premier League club are at an advanced stage."

However, Wigan released a statement of their own confirming that "contrary to heavy media speculation, no official bid has been made to Bristol City for striker Nicky Maynard and there have been no official talks with the player or the club."
