The 23-year-old left-back, who hails from Sydney, spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Wigan from Premier League outfit Leicester City.

Elder made 33 appearances in all competitions as Wigan won the League One, earning promotion to England's second tier.

He was also a regular during their FA Cup run which saw them reach the quarter-finals, knocking out top flight trio Manchester City, West Ham and Bournemouth.

According to the Daily Mail, Wigan boss Paul Cook is keen to sign Elder permanently.

Elder has one year remaining on his Leicester contract but is behind Ben Chilwell and Christian Fuchs as first-choice left-back options.

The Manly United product joined Leicester as a 16-year-old in 2011 but has not made a first-team appearance for the Foxes.

Elder has also had loan spells with Mansfield, Peterborough, Brentford, Barnsley and most recently Wigan.

Earlier this month, Elder told Wigan Today: "It’s hard to say where I’ll be next season.

"I’ve obviously got one more year on my deal at Leicester, and we’ll see what happens there.

"All I can say is I’ve enjoyed my time here so much, it’s been an amazing 12 months and I’ll never forget it."
