Leeds captain Jason Pearce looks set to sign for Wigan. Pearce has found it hard to get a abe in the back four in recent weeks, and the arrival of Sol Bamba will push him further down the pecking order.
Pearce has been a good servant for Leeds. His commitment to the cause cannot be faulted-he has thought nothing of the putting his body on the line for the cause, and wears his heart on his sleeve. The emergence of Cooper though has meant his game time is limited, with Leeds going for more of a passing style than the old fashioned centre half.
If a deal can be agreed, he will be another captain leaving, following McCormack and Warnock (former captain Rudy Austin is also a target for Cardiff, but a good chance he will stay).
Expect movement either way within the next 24 hours.
