UWE Rosler’s transfer dealings could go down to the last day of the window.

Two things that look certain are that James McArthur will leave Latics, while Adam Forshaw will join after a bid was accepted for him earlier this week.

The Brentford midfielder is poised to put pen to paper on a contract at the DW once a few formalities are sorted out.

McArthur, meanwhile, was believed to be heading to Leicester after Dave Whelan revealed Latics had accepted an offer but it’s now believed Crystal Palace could come in with a late bid too.

Rosler is still hoping to sign a striker with Frenchman Andy Delort the main man in question.

A number of Championship sides are also interested in landing the 22-year-old from his current club Tours.

Newly-promoted Wolves are the latest to enter the frame with Charlton also interested.

Tours issued a statement saying: “A better offer (than Wigan’s) has been made by another British club, which included a very intriguing link-up with the Tours FC training centre.”

LATICS’ home match against Ipswich Town has been moved to be broadcast live on Sky.

The clash with the Tractor Boys was originally scheduled for Saturday September 20 at the DW Stadium but will now be played two days later on Monday September 22, with a 7.45pm kick off.

WIGAN referee Paul Tierney is set to take charge of his first Premier League match tomorrow.

The official – stepdad of Warriors youngster Lewis Tierney, Jason Robinson’s son – will be the man in the middle at the Liberty Stadium when Swansea host West Brom.
