Wigan Athletic close in on Bristol City ace Adomah

Wigan Athletic are set to land Bristol City winger Albert Adomah.

Bristol boss Sean O'Driscoll believes the Latics are close to an agreement for the midfiedler.

The 25-year-old, who put in a transfer request as he sought a move to the DW Stadium, looks all but certain to make the switch as the two clubs move towards an agreement.

O'Driscoll said: "I want it sorted for Albert's sake, for our sake and for everybody's sake.

"I need to know whether he is going to still be with us when the season starts and if Wednesday comes around and nothing has been decided, I will use him against Reading.

"We've tried to move the situation along. Albert's agent advised him to put in a transfer request because that was the next step for him and he stayed behind when we went to Spain last week.

"We need to clarify the situation and either draw a line under it or wish him all the best. If Wigan want him and have the money, then you would think they would come up with an offer that we deem acceptable.

"I think they (Wigan and City) are as close as they can be, but it still has to get over the line. But if he is involved on Wednesday, I will be sitting down with the board and saying 'look, this cannot go on'."

It is believed the Latics have offered around £850,000 while Bristol City are seeking £1 million.
