LATICS are set to sign Torquay United keeper Dan Lavercombe when the January transfer window opens, reports suggest.

Reports say the 19-year-old will join for an undisclosed fee, but will then be loaned back to the National League club for the remainder of the season.

Wigan Athletic are unable to confirm the reports, but Torquay United manager Kevin Nicholson told BBC Sport: “Wigan’s looking like a strong possibility.”

Last month, the shot-stopper was linked with a move to Bolton.
