Report: West Brom 'close' to securing deal to sign Wigan winger Callum McManaman

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Brom are reportedly close to wrapping up a deal for Wigan Athletic winger Callum McManaman.

According to Sky Sports, Wigan are on the verge of selling winger Callum McManaman to West Bromwich Albion after accepting a third bid from the Baggies.

The former Everton youngster, 23, has hit five goals in 23 appearances for the Latics this season, but his exploits look to have earned him a move back to the Premier League.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has recently admitted to the Birmingham Mail that he wanted more pace on the flanks, and after links to QPR's Matt Phillips, Nottingham Forest's Michail Antonio and Tottenham's Aaron Lennon, he finally seems to have landed his man.

According to the BBC, Wigan have already rejected two bids from West Brom for McManaman, with one being over £4m - but now it appears that West Brom have met Wigan's asking price for the former England Under-21 international.

The 2013 FA Cup winner was a key part of Roberto Martinez's side during that sensational run, which culminated in the Latics beating Manchester City at Wembley - and McManaman even earned the man of the match award that day after terrorising the City defence all afternoon.

Pulis will now be banking on the Liverpudlian recreating those kind of performances should he complete his move to The Hawthorns, which looks like being a formality at this point.
