Championship sides Stoke City and Wigan Athletic are set to move for left-back Scott McMann (Scottish Sun).

The 23-year-old has been a fine player for Brian Rice’s Accies side this term, making 34 appearances in all competitions. It has seemingly attracted Stoke and Wigan attention.

McMann’s potential fee could be £500,000, as Hamilton may find such a sum hard to turn down.

Potential pickup

Stoke and Wigan reportedly see McMann as a signing for next term. The pair are still planning for next season despite having no idea when the current one will restart, if at all, again.

It is also mentioned in the report that Alex Neil may be interested in bringing McMann to Preston. Neil was Accies boss before embarking on his journey south of the border.

Rice will obviously be looking to keep McMann but money could well play a factor should interest from the likes of Stoke and Wigan be formalised.

With steady performances in South Lanarkshire, it’s no surprise to see McMann linked with bigger clubs down south.
