Wigan are certainly busy in the transfer market at the moment, at least that’s if newspaper and media talk is to be believed.

Antoine Sibierski has been told he can leave on a free with Norwich City interested (we’ll miss you Antoine if you go.)

Marlon King has attracted the interest of Derby County – personally, can’t see this coming off, but if it does, it might pave the way for funds for Andy Johnson to come to us. Why Marlon King would want to go to Derby, though, is anyone’s guess but if it gives us funds to buy Johnson, I’m all for it.

The next transfer has been dragging on now for weeks on end – a transfer that was reputedly agreed some time back still goes on now and that is the transfer surrounding Amr Zaki – is he or isn’t he coming to the JJB Stadium? The chairman of Zamalek is not helping matters. I would like to see Zaki come and I hope for the sake of us long suffering Latics fans that he does.

Another rumour a bit quiet of late is of Cisse. He would be excellent next to Zaki up front but this rumour and interest seems to have cooled – does this mean we’ve lost interest in Cisse? I do hope not. A Zaki/Cisse combination would be very interesting and productive.

South American striker Cabanas is attracting the attention of Steve Bruce and apparently he has been offered a contract – this is a signing that could come off sooner rather than later depending on the decision of the individual concerned.

Well, its certainly been another busy week in the transfer market. I just hope we can sign some of the names mentioned above.

Hopefully it’ll be another pre-season of productiveness in the transfer market for the Latics!

GO WIGAN!!!!!!!
