Paul Jewell has confirmed he has made a move for Rotherham's Mile Pollitt.Wigan boss Paul Jewell has confirmed he has made a move for Rotherham goalkeeper Mike Pollitt.
The 33-year-old was widely regarded as one of the finest shot-stoppers in The Championship last term despite playing for a struggling side.
Jewell revealed he had opened talks with Rotherham for the custodian, but insisted a deal was still some way off.
"He is a player I'm interested in signing and we have made an approach," he told the club's official website.
"However, at this moment in time we are still at the discussion stage."
Jewell has a reported war-chest of around £30 million to sign new players this summer but recently admitted his frustration at finding players who wanted to join the newly-promoted outfit.
