Kirkland had been on loan at Leicester City earlier on in the season, but had originally returned due to injury before returning to Leicester till January.
Boss Martinez earlier in the season said that there is still a place for him in the Wigan team, he just has to get back to match sharpness.
Many and me included now feel that he has peaked and done the best he can for the club. He was a great signing at the time, given matches and confidence he was one of the best keepers in the country if not the world, but continual back injuries seem to be getting the better of him.
Who knows. I believe I am one of many hoping that he will be able to come back next season and show us what he is truly capable of.
