Bruce set for bumper pay-day at Wigan

Steve Bruce will enjoy a pay-hike should he choose to quit Birmingham City and move to Wigan Athletic this week.

The Daily Mail says Latics chairman Dave Whelan sees Bruce as the ideal replacement for Chris Hutchings.

He is not only prepared to compensate Birmingham for luring away their manager - a Premier League record £3 million - but is also prepared to reward Bruce handsomely with a seven-figure salary as well as a £1m bonus should topflight survival be achieved.
