McClean, who was voted Wigan’s Player of the Year this season, has been training with former club Derry City this week and is expected to leave the DW Stadium this summer despite having a year left on his current deal.

It is understood that one of the MLS clubs the Ireland international is holding talks with is New York Red Bulls.

Orlando City and Colorado Rapids are also rumoured to be interested in signing McClean.

Rumours of the winger leaving Wigan have intensified following the club’s relegation from the Championship at the end of April.

The 26-year-old, who has 25 caps for the Republic of Ireland, has been linked with a move to Newcastle United, Celtic, Derby County and Hull City in recent weeks.

McClean joined Wigan on a three-year contract from Sunderland in August 2013 and has gone on to make 56 appearances for the Latics, scoring eight goals.

The winger began his career in Ireland with spells at Institute and Derry City before joining Sunderland for £350,000 in August 2011.
