Wigan are believed to be ready to make Bates a lucrative offer to sign for them this summer.

But the offer could depend on Bruce staying put at Wigan.

Wigan had announced earlier that they had given their permission for Bruce to talk to Sunderland.

The 22-year-old is out of contract this summer and can sign for any club he wishes.
