Calderwood heads for Wigan exit door

Wigan have confirmed that winger Mark Calderwood will not be offered a new deal, and will be leaving the JJB Stadium at the end of the season.nnThe England international, 26, signed a two-year deal with Brian Noble’s side in 2006, after joining from Leeds, and extended his stay in Wigan after helping the team reach the play-off semi-final eliminator last season.nnHowever, London-born Calderwood appears to have fallen out of favour this season, and was even omitted from head coach Noble’s squad for Saturday night’s 45-38 loss to Les Catalans.nn”My agent had told me there won’t be a new contract at Wigan next year,” Calderwood told the Wigan Evening Post.nn”It’s disappointing, but has come as no great surprise, and now that the uncertainty is over, at least I can plan ahead long-term,” he added.nnCalderwood has already been linked with a move to Humberside, with Hull FC rumoured to be interested.nnJohn Agar’s Black & Whites are in need of a direct replacement for Australian Matt Sing, who will retire at the end of this season.nnA move to the KC Stadium doesn’t appear to be a problem for Calderwood. “I would like to go back to Yorkshire, that’s the plan at the moment anyway. But wherever I go, I feel I should be joining a Super League club,” he said.nn”I’m only 26, and I feel I’ve got a few seasons at the top ahead of me when hopefully I can prove Wigan wrong.”
