Jewell rules out Carroll return
Goalkeeper Roy Carroll
Wigan boss Paul Jewell insists he will not bring goalkeeper Roy Carroll back to his former club, claiming they would not be able to meet his wage demands.

Carroll was released by Manchester United after the FA Cup Final and had been linked with a move back to Wigan.

He left for United in a 2.5m deal in July 2001, and Jewell said: "Roy Carroll is a very good goalkeeper."

But he added: "If he turned down 20,000-a-week at United it's hardly likely that he will be coming here."

Wigan are searching for cover for John Filan, who was the regular keeper as they won promotion to the Premiership.

He said: "I am looking to bring in another keeper. John Filan will be our number one, but we need to strengthen in that area."

The 27-year-old Northern Ireland international was signed by Wigan from Hull for 350,000 in April 1997.
