Tomasz Kuszczak has always been the established second choice goalkeeper at Manchester United; never quite able to break into the first team, but always reliable enough to be called upon when needed.
Until recently, that had seemed enough for the Polish stopper. Yet after Kuszczak revealed his dissatisfaction with life on the Old Trafford bench, Alex Ferguson was quick to act, bringing in Anders Lindegaard to replace Kuszczak as deputy to Edwin Van der Sar.
Kuszczak has yet to play a minute in the Premiership this season, and is now actively seeking a new club to guarantee him regular first team football. According to the Daily Mirror, that club is Wigan, with Roberto Martinez apparently keen to secure the United keeper’s services.
With only two goalkeepers named in the Wigan squad, Martinez has reputedly made it a top priority to reinforce this area come January, counting on Kuszczack’s ability and experience to help his team secure Premier League survival.
United would be willing to do business for around £3m.
If he leaves United for another Premiership club, will Kuszczak enjoy a success story similar to that of predecessors Tim Howard and Ben Foster?
