Japan international winger Ryo Miyaichi is almost certain to miss Wigan’s FA Cup semi-final showdown with Millwall, with some sources claiming he will miss the remainder of the season.
Ryo sustained an injury in the same competition, in the Latics’ victory at Everton; but he will be keen to play Millwall: a team he scored against last season, while on loan at Bolton.
Meanwhile, Roberto Martinez is already planning to keep Ryo next season. The Wigan boss said: “We will have to speak with Arsenal and we need to assess and make sure they are happy with the progression of the player.
“Ryo is a footballer that we really admire and has an incredible future in front of him so if we could work with him for a longer period we would be very happy to do that.”
