Latics boss Chris Hutchings is reportedly preparing a £2 million bid for Aston Villa midfielder Gavin McCann.
According to the Sunday People, Hutchings is desperate to talk to the 29 year old in a bid to get him to the JJB.
Blackpool born McCann played 30 league games for Villa last season scoring once.
The former Everton and Sunderland player has a wealth of experience at the top level.
He was an integral part of the Sunderland set-up, becoming one of Peter Reid’s most exciting young players and earned an England cap under Sven Goran Eriksson.
McCann left Sunderland in July 2003 signing a 3-year contract with David O’Leary’s Aston Villa for £2.25million.
Is Gavin McCann the player to start the Latics spending spree?
