Manager confirms interest in Jose

As the end to the transfer window looms, Lee Johnson has confirmed that Jose Baxter (pictured) is a wanted man.

"We have had an approach and some interest in Jose and we have to decide whether or not it is right for the club," explained Latics' manager.

Johnson added that there are many things to discuss before a decision is made.

He said: "We have to decide whether it is right for all parties, whether we can replace him, does he want to go or stay and all sorts of things will be going on in the next two or three days. 

"It may not happen and I would say it is very much 50/50 at the moment.

"Jose is a great player and we don't want to lose him. I am sure whether it is here or elsewhere he will go on and do well in football because he is a good lad."

Latics' manager also confirmed he is trying to strengthen his squad before the transfer window shuts on Monday.
