Wigan are reportedly weighing up a move for Finland striker Roni Porokara.

The Orebro SK player has also attracted interest from a number of clubs in Germany as well as Maccabi Haifa.

Porokara, 26, would cost around £500,000 and is eager to play in the Premier League. He scored the winner in Finland's victory over Belgium last week.

Dekel Keinan will be available for Blackpool's trip to Arsenal tomorrow after finally signing a two-year deal. As reported, Keinan's work permit was approved last month but due to Ministry of Employment bureaucracy he only received it on Monday.

Keinan said: "I had other offers but after meeting manager Ian Holloway, I was sure that I wanted to play for Blackpool and help this team."

Dean Furman was on target as League One Oldham Athletic maintained their winning start in with a 3-0 victory over Notts County.
