Addicks move in for unsettled United winger

 

Jun 14 2006

 

By Alan Oliver, The Evening Chronicle

 

Wigan Athletic have moved in for Newcastle United winger James Milner. And unlike Aston Villa, Wigan are ready to pay United the £3.5m they paid Leeds United for the 20-year-old in 2004.

 

However, Villa chairman Doug Ellis believes that Milner is only worth £2m - much to the disappointment of Villa Park boss David O'Leary after the England Under-21 star's successful 12-month loan spell in the Midlands last season.

 

And talk about a swap involving Villa left-winger Gareth Barry has already been discounted by United.

 

For Glenn Roeder is looking to add some pace to his side and, while tough guy Barry has a lot of admirable qualities, pace is not one of them.

 

Wigan boss Paul Jewell is in Germany and is working for the BBC on tonight's World Cup encounter between the host nation and Poland.

 

 

But he has left word at the JJB Stadium "to get Milner," although it might prove difficult to persuade the winger that this is where his future lies.

 

In fact, I hear that after talking to Roeder and being impressed with what the new United boss had to say, Milner now wants to make a go of things at St James' Park.

 

Newly-promoted Sheffield United are hoping to take Nicky Butt off United's hands, but the former England midfielder's wages could prove to be a stumbling block for the Blades.

 

Its LATICS you cock

 

Addicks are Charlton.

Shouldn't this be "Football team nickname" knowledge? Nicknames of teams are hardly a big part of the game are they?

Bollocks, a so called "journalist" should not be making basic factual errors.

Wigan make £4m bid for Milner

 

by Jason Burt

 

Published: 15 June 2006

 

Wigan Athletic are to offer up to £4m for Newcastle's James Milner. It had been expected that the winger would join Aston Villa, where he was on loan last season, but it is understood that their offer falls far short of the valuation put on the 20-year-old.

 

Villa's manager, David O'Leary, has made no secret of his desire to sign the England under-21 international permanently, but is unlikely to be able to match Wigan's bid. Despite their interest, however, they may struggle to sign the winger as he is unsure whether to leave St James' Park and will hold more talks with the manager, Glenn Roeder, when he returns from holiday. Newcastle are in the hunt to sign Fulham's Steed Malbranque, who is on the transfer list after refusing to sign a new contract.

 

The Wigan manager, Paul Jewell, who is in Germany as a pundit for the BBC, has already said he expects a busy summer. He is bidding for Birmingham's Emile Heskey and is interested in Ajax midfielder Denny Landzaat, and the club are close to agreeing a loan deal to take the Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland, who has just completed a loan spell at West Brom.

 

The Iceland international Eidur Gudjohnsen has moved from Chelsea to Barcelona for £8m, while Everton have completed the signing of the Wolves defender Joleon Lescott.

 

The striker Michael Chopra has signed for Cardiff and may be joined by the Barnsley midfielder Stephen McPhail.

 

The Sunderland chairman Bob Murray is to stand downand will end his 20-year spell in charge on 30 June, although it is understood he will remain on the board while takeover talks continue with Niall Quinn's consortium. Leroy Rosenoir has been named Brentford's new manager.
