Skysports.com understands Hamilton are closing in on the signing of Wigan midfielder Jon Routledge.
Hamilton have moved to bring Routledge in on loan to help fill the void left by James McArthur's departure to the DW Stadium.
Routledge is highly-rated at Wigan and he recently signed a new one-year deal at the Lancashire club.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a loan spell with Ostersunds FK in Sweden earlier this summer and Latics boss Roberto Martinez is happy to loan him out so that he can gain some valuable first-team action.
Routledge is believed to have linked up with Hamilton on their pre-season tour of Marbella and he is set to seal his loan switch to the club later this week.
