Antonee Robinson’s failed move to AC Milan has the young defender remaining with Wigan Athletic at least until the end of the EFL Championship season.
Robinson has not featured in the last two matches since the closure of the January Transfer Window, but could feature in midweek play for the Latics. Paul Cook’s side could desperately use Robinson’s presence in a midweek clash with Middlesbrough, knowing three points would move them to one point from safety in the English second tier. The 22-year-old has made 29 league appearances since his permanent move from Everton, scoring his first goal and playing an important role defensively.
Wigan’s two-match winning streak ended on Saturday in a 2-1 home defeat to Preston North End. The club will look to exact revenge against Boro’ after a 1-0 loss to them back in August.
