Martinez linked with winger swoop
Reading are preparing themselves for a £5m bid from Wigan for the services of Stephen Hunt, according to reports.
Following the failure to secure promotion last season the Royals are losing players to former top-flight rivals while last week Kevin Doyle went to Wolves for a fee of around £6.5m. Now Wigan's new boss Roberto Martinez is being linked with a £5m move for Hunt who has attracted interest from a host of clubs, with Everton strongly linked with a move at one point. Reading would be reluctant sellers but any bid in excess of £5m would probably be enough to see the winger on the move.
