According to The Liverpool echo, Wigan Athletic have taken the lead in the race to sign Everton left back, Antonee Robinson.

The article from The Echo states:

“Wigan Athletic are interested in signing Antonee Robinson on loan. The 20-year-old Everton left-back is now available after the Blues completed the signing of Lucas Digne from Barcelona earlier today.

Digne and Leighton Baines will compete for the left-back slot which leaves the talented Robinson free to leave on a short-term deal to aid his development. Bolton Wanderers had been favourites to take the USA international on loan for a second season running but the ECHO understands that the DW Stadium has now emerged as a more likely destination for the Academy graduate.”

Oh bollocks.
