Wigan Athletic manager Malky Mackay has revealed that four Premier Clubs have expressed an interest in Callum McManaman.

The midfielder has scored four times this season and is thought to be attracting attention, with West Brom currently the front runners for his signature.

Two bids have been rejected, with three other clubs enquiring about the 23-year-old. Speaking at his press conference, the Latics manager had the following to say:

“The second bid has been rejected, that’s where we are with that,” Mackay said.

Hull boss Steve Bruce has made an enquiry about MacManaman: “There’s been no formal bid but there’s been an enquiry,” Mackay said.

“There’s been an enquiry from a few clubs but I have great respect for Steve Bruce so I don’t want to say any more than that.”

McManaman made his debut for Wigan in 2009, having signed a professional contract. He went onto to play a pivotal role in their shock FA Cup victory over Manchester City in the final at Wembley; a match in which McManaman was voted Man of the Match.
