Wigan refused to meet Blackburn price for Roberts

Wigan Athletic refused to meet Blackburn Rovers' asking price for Jason Roberts on Tuesday.

The Daily Mail says Wigan showed late interest in Roberts - but once they opted against the transfer Sam Allardyce's hopes of bringing in another striker dwindled.

Blackburn wanted around £750,000 for Roberts, 32, but Wigan did not want to pay more than £500,000.
