The BBC are reporting that former Wigan Athletic boss Paul Jewell has been back to his old club in a bid to negotiate a deal to take striker Marlon King to Pride Park on a year long loan

King only joined the Latics in January from Championship club Watford for what was reportedly a £4 million fee, but he has failed to settle and scored just one goal which was a penalty against Blackburn Rovers

With Egypt striker Amr Zaki joining the JJB side and talk of Evertons Andy Johnson also moving down the East Lancs Road to the Latics, boss Steve Bruce may be willing to deal on this

The BBC say that the deal is very close to happening and it may well just be waiting for Kings signature as the player has been on extended leave due to playing World Cup qualifiers for Jamaica during the off season
