Pollitt: Man City star Hart could've been Wigan No1

Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Mike Pollitt has revealed Manchester City No1 Joe Hart could be playing at the DW!

Pollitt wrote in the Wigan Observer: "It's not common knowledge, but Joe nearly came to Wigan a few years ago.

"When I first signed, and John Filan was already here, we were trying to get a young goalkeeper on board as well.

"I remember (coach) Gary Walsh telling me he'd been down to Shrewsbury a few times to see a young lad, and I asked what he was like.

"He told me he was a brilliant goalkeeper, but he seemed a bit cocky - and I suppose he does have that look about him.

"Anyway the club wouldn't pay the money Shrewsbury were after - it was a lot for a lad so young, especially someone who'd only ever played in League Two - and he eventually went to Manchester City."
