Despite skysports and various social media outlets reporting the sale of Rodolph Austin, nothing official has gone through. Leeds turned down a bid last Wednesday, but Wigan are targeting the Jamaican international and testing Leeds' resolve.
There could be a clash between manager Neil Redfearn and whoever is pulling the strings (or having their strings pulled) during the enforced absence of Massimo Cellino.
Redfearn clearly wants him to stay, whereas the club, somewhat understandably, can see the benefit of half a million pounds for a player who can walk away for nothing in the summer.
Personally, think if Wigan are prepared to bid high enough, a deal will be done-they need players to help pull away from the relegations scrap, and only last week signed Jason Pearce from us.
Going to be an interesting day today-expect at least one, but I'm told more are wanted-it's the outgoing players that could be worth keeping an eye on...
