Ca­ley al­low McKay to talk to Wi­gan

The Herald - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

IN­VER­NESS have con­firmed they have given Billy McKay per­mis­sion to speak to Wi­gan – but re­as­sured fans they have pre­pared for their top goalscorer’s po­ten­tial de­par­ture.

McKay could sign for the Sky Bet Cham­pi­onship side be­fore the week­end if the North­ern Ire­land in­ter­na­tional agrees terms fol­low­ing a re­ported £150,000 bid.

The striker had made it clear to In­ver­ness that he would not ex­tend his con­tract beyond the sum­mer and Ca­ley This­tle are look­ing to cash in now.

“Billy has never hid­den his am­bi­tion to com­pete at the high­est pos­si­ble level and has al­ways con­ducted him­self in a pro­fes­sional man­ner in this re­gard,” chair­man Kenny Cameron said yes­ter­day. “We are grate­ful to Wi­gan Ath­letic FC for the cour­tesy shown in speak­ing to us be­fore open­ing their dis­cus­sions with the player.”

The 26-year-old has scored 59 goals in his last two-and-a-half sea­sons in Scot­land and has started all but one of his club’s games this term.
