Some reports have suggested that the Latics are eyeing Carlisle United's winger Jamie Devitt who is out of contract at Brunton Park, even though he has been offered a new deal. He is 28-years-old and scored 11 goals last season after arriving from Morecambe where he played 98 games and scored 12 goals.
Carlisle manager, Steven Pressley commented, “He’s another who I had a good conversation with. It’s a situation in his career where he has a big decision to make. He’s at a stage where this is probably the most important contract he’ll sign. He’s at that sort of age, and he’s had a terrific season, so he will obviously have suitors from elsewhere. He now has to weigh up what the best option for him is and I think we can only respect that. We, obviously, would love him to stay because he’s been a terrific player for the club. I have a very good relationship with him, but only time will tell now.”
