Wigan Athletic are awaiting responses from Emerson Boyce, Paul Scharner and Mike Pollitt, over new contracts that have been offered to the trio

Both Scharner and Boyce are extensions to current deals which have another year left on them whilst Pollitts contract is about to expire and he`s been offered a new one year contract by the club.

Talking to the Wigan Evening Post about the three deals manager Steve Bruce said:

“We’re having discussions with Boyce about him getting a new deal – he’s done very well here,’

‘He came into the team during the season and it’s hard to remember him putting a foot wrong once he got in.

‘Most of the time Boyce was playing at centre-half, but in the last couple of games we switched him to right-back when Mario Melchiot was injured, and he did well there too.

‘As far as the other contract negotiations are concerned, I would think Polly will sign for another year.

‘There’s nothing more to report on Scharner as yet, things have gone a bit quiet. Hopefully we can make some progress over the next few weeks.

‘I was delighted to get Kirkland’s contract done the other week. Sorting out players already at the club is just as important as bringing in new signings.’

Three important players that need to be kept on at the club, with Kirkland already signing an extension lets hope that encourages these three to follow suit.
