Latics eye Devitt

Last updated : 01 June 2019 By The Chairman

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.”
