Spanish sources claim that Jordi Gomez is set to join Wigan Athletic for a £1.6m fee.

The Espanyol midfielder hugely impressed last year during his £200,000 season-long loan at the club and former boss Roberto Martinez showed a keen interest in making the move permanent.

It looked unlikely that would happen though as Martinez said that the Swans could not compete financially as a host of other clubs showed an interest in the youngster.

Gomez, who scored 14 goals for the Swans last season, looks set to team up with Roberto Martinez again.

Everton, Middlesbrough, Newcastle United and Celtic were other teams who were linked with the 24 year-old.
