The Glasgow-born Republic of Ireland international is believed to have been close to agreeing personal terms with the Premier League club, who tabled a £5m bid for the Spartak Moscow star, but talks between the player and club broke down yesterday.

The winger – who was also linked with Everton yesterday – has spoken of his desire to leave Moscow and return to a British club. He joined Spartak for £10m in 2010.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez was disappointed to miss out on his target.

"It's not going to happen," Martinez said yesterday. "Aiden is a phenomenal footballer, but is a footballer that is playing his football in Russia. I don't think that's going to change."
