Reports in today’s League Weekly suggest Wigan will make a shock move for St Helens half-back Danny Richardson.
The 22-year-old is out of favour at Saints this season and the paper claims the Warriors will make a play for him should they fail to land Jackson Hastings.
However, these rumours may have already been quashed with Wigan Today editor Phil Wilkinson tweeting “Wigan are not moving for Richardson.”
It’s believed the Warriors are still confident of securing main target Hastings from Salford despite interest from relegation-threatened Leeds Rhinos.
Wigan have already secured the signings of Mitch Clark and Jake Bibby for 2020, but the club’s hierarchy are desperate to land a replacement for Canberra-bound George Williams ahead of next season.
