Espanyol starlet set for Wigan

Espanyol teenager Roman Golobart claims to be close to a move to Premier League side Wigan. The 17-year-old was thought to be on the verge of joining the Latics last summer before the deal failed to materialise. But centre-back Golobart now says that he is set to move to the DW Stadium as a result of manager Roberto Martinez's persistence. He told Spanish media: "The sporting challenge is key for me and is more important than the money. "I want to improve my level and I see less opportunities at Espanyol so I have accepted a move. "Roberto Martinez has insisted on my arrival and this has been key."
