FORMER Wigan Athletic manager Ray Mathias has revealed that he has been in touch with Leicester City boss Peter Taylor over Latics goalkeeper Roy Carroll.

Leicester have been strongly linked with a summer move for Carroll, with some reports indicating that they are prepared to spend £2 million on the 23-year-old shot-stopper.

"I've spoken with Peter a few times and he's asked me what I think about Roy because he played in my Wigan team.

"I rate him and he certainly has the ability to develop as a Premiership player should the chance come his way. Roy is an excellent prospect."
