Doncaster Rovers summer target Richard O’Donnell has agreed to join Wigan Athletic after leaving Walsall.

Rovers, on the hunt for a new number one this summer, had shown an interest in the former Sheffield Wednesday keeper.

But after yesterday announcing he would be rejecting a new deal with Walsall, O’Donnell has today revealed he will be joining Wigan in July.

Sheffield United were also linked with the Sheffield-born keeper but are understood not to have made an approach.
