Reports on Wednesday evening suggest Wigan Athletic have edged ahead of Bolton in the race to sign Antonee Robinson.

Robinson, who spent last season on loan with Wanderers, had looked set to make a return to the University of Bolton Stadium after the Toffees announced the transfer of Lucas Digne from Barcelona earlier in the day.

The 20-year-old was last week given preliminary permission to hold talks over a loan move away from Goodison Park, with manager Marco Silva prepared to sanction a move once the player had committed to a new contract - having recently entered the final year of his existing deal.

Trotters boss Phil Parkinson now looks set to miss out on one of his major targets, and will seemingly have to look elsewhere with just eight days of the transfer window remaining.
