Wigan closing in on new signing

Wigan Warriors are understood to be closing in on a new signing.

TotalRL understands the Warriors are moving in on a deal for an overseas player to bolster Adrian Lam’s squad ahead of 2019.

The club’s rugby director, Kris Radlinski, is currently abroad in Dubai. Meanwhile, TotalRL has also learned that some of Wigan’s younger playmakers have been offered out on loan this week.

These latest developments coincide with Lam admitting the club hopes to have news in the coming days.

“We probably need to strengthen up our halves. We’re looking in that area immediately,” he told Wigan Today.

“Hopefully there’ll be something in the next couple of days.”
