West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis confirmed he has made a bid for Wigan Athletic's Callum McManaman as he looks to add a winger to his squad.
Wigan have reportedly rejected a four million-pound bid from West Brom for McManaman -- two million pounds short of the Latics' asking price -- with coach Malky Mackay saying in the Daily Mirror: "It would take an awful lot of money for Callum to leave Wigan -- that would be a board decision."
Pulis said after Monday night's 0-0 draw at Everton that the 23-year-old was one of several targets he hoped to bring to The Hawthorns in the January transfer window to boost their bid for Premier League survival.
The Baggies' boss told reporters: "It is not just him. We have had four bids for different players. We are just waiting to see what clubs want and then we will take a view. We wait to see what are value for money. Some have been rejected, some we are still negotiating."
McManaman first came attracted attention in 2013, when he was part of the Wigan side that won the FA Cup but was relegated to the Championship a week later. He has played 22 league games this season, but has not played since the turn of the year after serving a three-match suspension.
