Chris Kirkland has declared himself fit to continue with his proposed loan move to Championship club Leicester City following an injury that he sustained in training prior to the Leicester v Forest game last week.
The Latics goalkeeper is eager to get himself involved in some first team football and he saw the loan move as a perfect way to keep himself sharp, he feared that it would be cancelled at one point last week but now he hopes it`s full systems ahead
Kirkland is expecting to go back to Leicester this week after undergoing treatment in Wigan, speaking to the Evening Post Kirkland said: “A lot`s been made of it again, but it`s fine now.
“I think the loan was going to be cancelled at one point last week, because it looked as though I`d be out for a couple of weeks.
“But thank goodness that`s no longer the case, and hopefully I can get down there later this week, prove my fitness to everyone and get out there on the pitch.
“I`ve spoken to the coaches at Leicester and they`re monitoring the situation.
“But I`m still a Leicester City player on loan, and hopefully I can rejoin the squad and push for a start this weekend.”
