Wigan chairman Whelan: We also want Black

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan admits he wants to bring Birmingham City assistant manager Eric Black to the club to work alongside Steve Bruce.

He told Sky Sports News: "I understand Birmingham have got a short-term problem in that there is uncertainty in terms of who is going to own the club - if people want to buy the club they should get on and do it.

"But we would like Eric Black to come as our assistant manager; I am confident we will get him but I understand he has got to stay there for a week or a fortnight. But he will be coming to us."
