Scottish side Dundee United are in talks with Wigan Athletic striker Billy McKay over a possible move back to the Scottish Premier League, according to the Herald Scotland.
The Scot signed for Wigan in January 2015 for a fee of £150,000 after scoring 10 goals in 23 appearances for Inverness CT, but he failed to fire the Latics to safety.
He made nine appearances at the DW Stadium, failing to score a single goal, as the Latics were relegated to League One last season.
Dundee United are now in talks to bring the 26-year-old back to Scotland with a six figure fee on the cards.
It’s not the only discussions between United and Wigan over the last couple of weeks, after they agreed a fee over Nadir Ciftci, believed to be worth around £1 million, but he snubbed a return to England and signed for Celtic.
Dundee boss Jackie McNamara is looking to replace Ciftci this year and wants a striker who’s proven in Scottish football, and with 54 goals for Inverness before his move, McKay is his number one target.
Wigan fans… What do you make of this news? would you be happy to see McKay leave? Let us know in the comments below.
