Wigan move for Man City striker Vassell

Wigan Athletic are ready to pounce for Manchester City striker Darius Vassell.

The Sun says City boss Sven Goran Eriksson offered the forward to Wigan as a makeweight in a bid to sign full-back Leighton Baines.

Latics boss Chris Hutchings was tempted, being keen to bring in a new forward after missing out on Marlon Harewood.

And he may still decide to pursue a separate deal for Vassell now Eriksson has cooled his interest in Baines in favour of Spaniard Javi Garrido.
