The young full back made a surprise appearance in last season's FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, and has recently spent some time on loan at Division One side Walsall.
Reports claim Wigan boss Paul Jewell, who has been looking to enter the transfer market again for some time, is planning a £250,000 bid for the Northern Ireland international.
Meanwhile, Saints have appointed John Mortimore as the club's new president. Mortimore replaces Ted Bates, who unfortunately passed away recently.
"I hope I have served well as vice-president and I will be looking to do the same as president," Mortimore told the club's official website.
"It is a real honour."
