After Kim impressed in a recent trial with The Latics, a switch appears to be on the cards according to the player's agent Kim Min-jae.
"Both (Kim Jung-woo) and Wigan believed the trial went well. There are some minor differences that need ironing out before the transfer can be concluded," Kim told MyDaily.
"We are still talking to Wigan at the moment."
Meanwhile, Kim's international team-mate Cho Jae-jin has returned to South Korea after failing to land a contract with a Premier League club.
