Uwe Rosler has revealed his intent to get FA Cup goal scoring hero Ben Watson and promising young defender Rob Kiernan new deals sorted out, but in different ways.

Ben Watson is in the final year of his contract, one of five key Latics players who could walk n the summer for nothing.

An attempt to get Ben to sign a new deal hit the buffers with Owen Coyle but the new manager is very willing to get the midfielder to commit his future to Wigan Athletic.

It has been noticed that both Reading and QPR could be throwing tempting bids in this month should the talks not progress.

Brentford are really keen to secure the loan services of Rob Kiernan til the end of the season and the Latics manager could well do his old club a favour and give the Latics defender some great experience in the process.
