Aberdeen youngster Fyvie travels for Wigan talks

The 19-year-old Scotland youth international has been courted by both the Latics and Fulham this summer following a breakthrough season in the SPL
Aberdeen midfielder Fraser Fyvie is in talks with Premier League club Wigan ahead of a proposed move south of the border.

The 19-year-old impressed at the heart of the Dons' engine room last term and the club have now confirmed that the player has been allowed to travel to the DW Stadium for discussions.

"Aberdeen FC can this morning confirm Fraser Fyvie is currently south of the border holding discussions with Wigan Athletic," the club announced on Monday.

“The 19-year-old midfielder became the youngest ever player to start for the Dons when he made his debut against Hamilton Accies in 2008."

Wigan look set to steal a march on Fulham, their rivals for the player's signature, and Aberdeen boss Craig Brown is resigned to losing one of his key players ahead of the new season.

"There's been interest, I'm told, from Fulham and Wigan," he told reporters.

"He has got his agent on the case trying to get him sorted before the start of the season."

Fyvie has made 66 appearances in three seasons at Pittodrie, scoring three goals in that time.

He missed the majority of the 2010-11 campaign through a cruciate ligament injury, but bounced back to become an integral member of the first team last season.
