Wiggins’ Charlton exit hits snag

Charlton Athletic defender Rhoys Wiggins’ proposed £750,000 move to fellow Championship side Sheffield Wednesday is reportedly in danger of collapse, according to sources close to the South Yorkshire club.

Wiggins, who has been with the Addicks since joining from Bournemouth in 2011, had been expected to complete a switch to Wednesday on Monday after travelling to Sheffield over the weekend.

However, with no official announcement having been made, rumours have emerged that there may have been an issue with the 27-year old’s medical. Wiggins has been plagued by injuries since fracturing several of his metatarsals in a game against Crystal Palace in 2012.

Another possible explanation is the player failing to agree personal terms. Wiggins is reported to be one of the highest earners at Charlton, and is contracted to the club until 2018.

Wiggins has slipped down the pecking order at Charlton, and is now thought to be manager Guy Luzon’s fourth choice left back, behind Morgan Fox, Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, Archie Edwards and new signing Zakarya Bergdich.

Reading are another club who have shown interest in the left back in the past.
