Wigan use Maloney cash to fund bid for Feyenoord striker Mitchell te Vrede

Wigan Athletic are eyeing Feyenoord striker Mitchell te Vrede.

Voetbal International says Wigan have opened talks with Feyenoord about a January deal for the 23 year-old forward.

The Latics had initially sought a loan deal, but Feyenoord chief Martin van Geel is insisting on a straight sale.

Wigan are now planning to accelerate the sale of Shaun Maloney to Leicester City to help fund a bid for Te Vrede, who is rated at over €1 million by Van Geel.

Te Vrede has spent the past two and a half years with the Rotterdam giants.
