VICTOR Moses remains on course to sign a new deal with Latics despite talks being put on hold.
The 20-year-old has been one of Wigan’s better performers this term, and had been rumoured to be on the verge of signing a contract extension.
Those rumours have gone quiet of late and, although there’s no need to panic with Moses still having over 18 months left on his current deal, both parties would favour a swift resolution.
“We had a chat with Wigan over a month ago, and we’re still waiting for them to get back to us,” revealed Moses’ agent, Tony Finnigan.
“They said they had been impressed with the way he’d started the season and they wanted to reward that.
“We thought that initial meeting had gone well but, since then, nothing else has happened.
“Obviously their run of form hasn’t been great, and that has to take precedence over things like contract talks. But the ball remains in Wigan’s court – 100 per cent.”
Finnigan was also quick to refute suggestions talks had broken down over the player’s wage demands.
“I don’t know where that came from, I really don’t,” he added.
“As far as we’re concerned nothing has broken down – we’re just waiting to hear back from Wigan.
“He’s not asking for the earth, he’s not being unrealistic. We’re not looking for a move, not looking for a fight.
“Vic’s happy at Wigan, he’s doing his bit and once we get the call we’ll be happy to sit down again.
“All he wants to do now is keep his head down, keep his place in the team, keep playing well and try to help Wigan up the league.
“We know he’s at a good club, and we’re hoping we can agree to an extension to benefit everyone.”
