It would appear that Wigan Athletic are close to completing a deal to bring Ipswich Town youngster Danny Haynes north to the JJB.

Vital Wigan reported earlier today that Latics boss Steve Bruce was in Suffolk last night to watch Haynes play in Ipswichs friendly with Premier League side West Ham United.

Now it is understood that negotiations are at an advanced stage and a deal to secure the services of the 20 year old striker isn`t far away.

Haynes can play as a striker or right winger and he is quick and skilful, Harry Redknapp is known top be an admirer of Haynes and Portsmouth were reportedly preparing a bid last month but nothing came of it.

Bruce will act quickly to get the player in before the start of the new campaign a week on Saturday.
