Last Updated: 22/07/20 12:04pm

Wigan Athletic’s administrators have selected their preferred bidder to buy the stricken football club.

Gerald Krasner, one of the three administrators brought in to manage the collapse of Wigan, said there were five offers in total from 64 non-disclosure agreements sent out.

The next deadline is midday on Thursday for the preferred bidder to sign the letter they’ve been sent spelling out the timeframe for a takeover, before contracts must be exchanged by July 31 – the same date their appeal against a 12-point penalty will be heard.

Wigan host Fulham later on Wednesday needing a win and other results go in their favour to avoid relegation to League One.
