League One Club, Wigan Athletic, on brink of £20M takeover

Wigan Athletic has potential to be under new ownership by the end of the year after Hong Kong-based investors agreed a takeover deal worth in excess of £20m.

The sale of the League One leaders is now subject to due diligence and approval from the Football League.

Owner, Dave Whelan, took control in 1995 but the 80-year-old brought in former Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook earlier this year to find a buyer.

It is hoped a deal will be done before the January transfer window opens.
