'If Moses has brains he'll stick with Wigan' - Whelan bullish despite Chelsea interest

The 21-year-old winger has been the subject of three bids from last season's FA Cup and Champions League winners, but has been advised to stay put by the Latics owner
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has pleaded with Victor Moses to stay at the club this summer, after rejecting a third Chelsea bid for the winger.

The 21-year-old Nigeria international has been the subject of serious interest from Roberto Di Matteo's side, but Whelan believes the player would be better continuing his development at the DW Stadium.

"If the lad had any brains he'd stay under Roberto for another year or so. Chelsea have made three bids and we've not accepted any," he told the Daily Mirror.

"They've all come in the last three weeks, but they've not offered enough. We're still hoping that he signs an extended deal.

"I don't know if they'll bid again, but if they do we always listen.  And if it is what Roberto believes he is worth then we will take it from there."

Moses featured 37 times for Roberto Martinez's side last season, finishing with six goals and six assists as the Latics avoided relegation.
