HITC Sport reports that Wigan look set to beat several Championship clubs to the signing of the 21-year-old midfielder.

Lundstram never featured in the Everton first-team, but did spend time out on loan at clubs such as Leyton Orient, Doncaster Rovers and Blackpool gaining valuable experience.

Despite being relegated to the third tier last season, HITC Sport reports that they have managed to persuade the England youth international to move to the DW stadium.

Wigan are looking to strengthen their squad as they look to rebuild and bounce back after relegation to League One last season. Lundstram would provide some added competition to the midfield and provide rookie manager Gary Caldwell with another option.
