St Johnstone captain Jason Kerr closing in on move to Wigan

ST JOHNSTONE skipper Jason Kerr is closing in on a move to League One side Wigan.

Herald and Times Sport understand that the double winning captain is close to joining The Latics for a fee in the region of £500,000.

Saints had interest from three other clubs this week, including a Scottish Premiership side, but Kerr has opted for a move down south.

Speaking previously this summer about transfer speculation, Kerr said: “It’s obviously flattering to get a lot of interest, a few boys are getting a lot of interest, but we’re at St Johnstone right now and we have a lot of important games coming up. 

“For me it’s all private between my agent and the club and that’s kind of it. 

“I’m a St Johnstone player right now, I love the club and I love what we’ve done and I’m just hungry for more success.”
