Rumour Mill-Caldwell Brothers-in-Arms at Wigan?

Steven Caldwell could link up with his brother Gary for the second time after Sunday media reports today linked him with a move to Wigan. Both Steve and Gary Caldwell were under contract at Newcastle in the earlier part of their careers(between 1998 and 2004) but rarely played together with loan moves keeping them apart.

Our former captain was released by Brian Laws earlier this month with his contract expiring in the summer. He has been stricken with injury this season after suffering with a persistent groin strain for most of 2009/10. The 29 year old Scotland international was given his Clarets swansong in the last few games of the season but in total he only played 13 times for the Clarets during 2009-10.

Some Clarets fans may be surprised that there is interest from Premier League sides. The News of the World today also suggests that newly promoted West Brom could be interested in signing him.

He wont be signing for us....now I've said it
worbo
I like to see how this rumour pans out seeing as a lot clarets fan didn't think he was good enough for Burnley.
Fedupclaret
Totally agree Fedup, very strange, he's the last person I would have linked to a Prem club.
sheclaret
A very good football brain in my opinion, just his ability to act on it quickly that sometimes let him down. Talk about him being our former captain, I saw Grezza referred to on the website earlier in the week as our club captain - I think we all knew it was coming, but did they make an official announcement?
Claretdale
Served us well a Wembley hero. But no longer good enough for the Prem or a top six Championship club like us.
Grimsby Claret
If he does go to Wigan it may only be as back up. I still think it was time for him to move on at Burnley, I would still pick the all our other centre backs ahead of him. I agree he has got a good footballing brain, but he really lacks pace now and it tells. How many times have we seen him hauling somebody down after getting caught out?
skutter169
Dont really disagree with you Skutter - fair comments.
Claretdale
He was bought for his leadership skills as much as for his playing skills I think. Has served us well and we should all thank him for his time at the club. Would be good in a Championship side that has quick fullbacks around him - very good in the air. All the play-off final side will have a special place in my heart. Thanks and good luck.

The time I was most impressed with him was in the SKY box on the Turf against Spurs in the Carling semi. He came across as having clear management potential. He will live in Claret memories forever as the man who raised the trophy at Wembley, but sadly also as the one who gave two goals away against Wolves against their 'rested' team. Has anyone scored for us from a corner since he last did. Was it at Plymouth? A proud and dedicated servant. All the best of luck to him.
Couch Potato
Couch - We scored from a corner in the game after against QPR, I dont know if the goal counted for Clarke or for Eagles. I dont know if you would count Wades goal against Bristol City on the final day as coming from a corner also?
Claretdale
Godstrewth CD! Two goals from corners in 2 consecutuve games. Those were the days! As we sang at Brum... "Score from a corner. We're gonna score from a corner. Score from a corner. We're gonna score from a corner." (Maybe we will if we buy Hulse?) I was on the Turf for Bristol, but can't quite replay the goal in my mind... Was Wade's the second touch after the corner kick? Right foot volley from outside the penalty area at the CF stand end?
