Latics confident over Alcaraz

09 July 2010 01:29
Wigan Athletic have dismissed reports coming out of Paraguay that Antolin Alcaraz may not join up with his new club as planned following the World Cup. The Latics snapped up the 27-year-old centre-half on a free transfer from Belgian club Club Brugge before the World Cup began. Alcaraz was one of the stars of Paraguay's march to the quarter-finals in South Africa and was reported to have told a radio station back in his homeland that he was still open to offers. "Yes, there is a preliminary agreement we signed, but there is the possibility we can realise other options," he was quoted as saying. "In fact, at this point I don't know where I am going. At the moment, all the teams that have showed an interest have a chance of signing me." However, Wigan fully expect Alcaraz to report for pre-season training later this month after lodging the player's registration with the Premier League.
