Wigan are in talks with Celtic about signing forward Shaun Maloney, chairman Dave Whelan has claimed.

The Scotland winger's first foray into English football did not turn out well after a disappointing spell with Aston Villa in 2007.

Maloney returned to Celtic in 2008 and signed a four-year deal but the club appear willing to sell him again, and Wigan told BBC Scotland: "Nothing concrete has happening as yet. We're still talking to the club. If we get things tied up with Celtic then he'll come down for a chat tomorrow."
