American MLS Giants New York Red Bulls are set to make a shock move for Wigan winger James McClean, according to the Daily Mail.
The winger was Wigan’s outstanding player in a dire season for the Latics, subsequently winning player of the season.
He he isn’t the only Wigan star to be whisked away to the USA over the last few months, after midfielder Shaun Maloney’s move to Leicester broke down and he joined Chicago Fire.
Interest is likely to be high in the 26-year-old this summer, as Wigan prepare an overhaul of their squad in order to climb back to the Championship once more.
Premier League strugglers Newcastle United were linked with a move for the Ireland international a few months ago, despite his past at Sunderland.
Wigan’s season couldn’t have gone worse, after starting the season as title favourites. They finished the Sky Bet Championship campaign in 23rd place, amassing 39 points.
Wigan Athletic fans….. What do you make of this news? Would it be a shame to see McClean leave the club this summer? Is he too good for League One? Let us know your thoughts below!
