Several news outlets are reporting that Big Sam will step into the race for Latics left back Leighton Baines

With Dave Whelan disclosing that Wigan have already accepted a bid for Baines this week and with the young defender reported to be close to signing for Everton the Geordies may have left it too late

Baines turned down one effort to get him up to the North East when rejecting Sunderland`s offer

With at least two North West clubs, Everton and Manchester City definitely interested and possibly two more Liverpool and Manchester United it will be a big surprise if Baines leaves the area

Sources reveal that the Everton move is the one most likely to happen this week and that Baines could have played his last game in a Latics shirt at Halifax last weekend

One way or another Chris Hutchings needs to bring in another left sided defender and quickly, there is only a week to go to the first match at Goodison Park and we don`t want to be turning up playing Kilbane at left back
