The Owls have had a bid accepted for Windass by the cash-strapped Latics - and it is believed at least two other clubs are chasing his signature.

One of those clubs is believed to be North End but Peter Ridsdale - the advisor to PNE owner Trevor Hemmings - said: "I can 100% guarantee we are not signing Josh Windass."

The 26-year-old has a year left on his contract at Wigan after joining from Rangers for £2.5million in 2018.
