Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has been checking out highly rated Scunthorpe United goalkeeper Joe Murphy and he is considering making a bid for the ex West Brom and Tranmere Rovers shot-stopper in the January transfer window.

The 28 year old Republic of Ireland international signed a one year contract extension keeping him at Scunthorpe in the summer with an option for another year similar to the deal Mike Pollitt has with the Latics.

It is no secret that Martinez is on the look out for more competition between the sticks and he sees Murphy as the man to keep current Latics number one Chris Kirkland on his toes
