Down-on-his-luck striker Park Chu-young was believed to be heading to English Championship side Wigan Athletic on loan from Arsenal, but it now looks as though the deal has hit a snag as Wigan has had second thoughts.
Negotiations between the two clubs have borne no fruit as Wigan decided it couldn't wait any longer to sign an emergency loan, spelling bad news for Park who is tired of warming the bench for the Gunners.
Korean national team manager Hong Myung-bo has made it clear that Park needs to get back in form in order to increase his chances of finding a spot on the national side ahead of next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
