Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is planning a £5 million raid on Wigan Athletic for fullback Maynor Figueroa.

The Daily Mail says Bruce has already upset former employer Dave Whelan with an £8m move for midfield linchpin Lee Cattermole and is now ready to test Wigan's resolve again with a move for the highly-rated Honduran.

Wigan are reeling on the back of defeats by Manchester United and Blackpool and will be reluctant to sell but acknowledge every player has their price.
