Paper Talk: Ryan Tunnicliffe Possible Loan Swoop

The news being spilled out of the rumour mill today is that Wigan Athletic and Uwe Rosler are possibly closing in on a loan signing to help back up our midfield options. That is following the double leg break of Ben Watson against Barnsley last week.

With Ben Watson out for the rest of the season and the foreseeable future, the club need to bring in another option to boost our options. Uwe Rosler said once the injured of Ben was confirmed that the club would look to add a new face, it looks likely that we are going to make a move in the loan market.

Fulham's Ryan Tunnicliffe looks to be the option we are expressing the most interest. The former Manchester United player had a very successful loan spell at Ipswich Town with Mick McCarthy earlier in the season, and they are also interested in the player.

Tunnicliffe was a United player until January, and the move to Fulham looked to have opened the door for the young England player to burst into the Premier League seen. He featured twice under Rene Meulensteen, yet since the change in management the player hasn't featured and has been told he will be allowed to go out on loan.

It appears to be a two horse race then to land the signature of the midfielder.
