Chelsea are ready to send Franco di Santo to Wigan Athletic.

Chelsea are ready to send Franco di Santo to Wigan Athletic.

The Wigan Evening Post says the 21-year-old’s arrival, which has been mooted for several days, was put on hold with Latics playing his parent club at the weekend. But Di Santo, who spent last term on loan at Blackburn, has now been given the green light to join Latics on a similar arrangement.

It’s hoped the South American duo will help get the best out of £6million man Mauro Boselli, who has endured a frustrating start to his Wigan career.
