Derry City’s James McClean’s proposed £250,000 move to Championship newcomers, Peterborough United has broken down after the club failed to agree personal terms with the Creggan man.
Despite the breakdown of the deal, Derry Chairman, Philip O’Doherty believes the deal can still be resurrected while Premiership outfit, Wigan are also believed to be keen on securing the winger’s signature having permitted the sale of Charles N’Zogbia to Aston Villa.
“From my understanding I think Peterborugh were unable to agree personal terms with James’ agent Platinum One,” said O’Doherty.
“The club and Peterborough had pretty much agreed a package that was acceptable but it has broken down due to personal terms.
“But sometimes these things seem like they’ve broken down when sometimes they haven’t, so we’ll see what happens.
“The N’Zogbia deal with Aston Villa has been concluded so Wigan, even though they haven’t made a formal offer, are interested and being kept up-to-date by the agent.
“Wigan had expressed a serious interest in James, they spent a lot of time checking him out and they may well rekindle their interest now NZogbia gone.”
