Wigan midfielder David Perkins is poised to joined League One basement boys Bury, HITC Sport understands.

Perkins has struggled to nail down a regular spot in Paul Cook's side this season, with the Latics leading the way at the top of League One.

The former Blackpool man has made just one start in the league, with another six appearances off the bench.

Cook is ready to let Perkins move on as he is well down the pecking order in his plans at the DW Stadium and his contract expires at the end of the season.

Perkins is happy to leave in search of regular first-team football at this stage of his career and Bury are ready to offer him a move to Gigg Lane.

Mangerless Bury are looking to add quality to their squad during this month's transfer window as they battle to avoid relegation, and they see an experienced campaigner like Perkins as being a valuable addition to their plans.

Bury are set to offer the 35-year-old a two-year deal to make the move to Gigg Lane.

Bury are currently 12 points adrift of safety and without a permanent manager after Chris Lucketti was sacked earlier this week following 10 games in charge.
