Frenchman looks set to leave Latics with Liverpool and Newcastle front-runners for the winger's signature after he admits relegation battles are 'not his favourite option'

Charles N'Zogbia has confirmed he wants to leave Wigan Athletic for a 'bigger club, with bigger goals'.

The ex-Newcastle United player has been linked with a return to Tyneside, but Liverpool are also said to be in the running for the Frenchman's signature.

But N'Zogbia has warned he will only join a club if they are challenging for silverware after admitting fighting relegation is 'not his favourite option'.

"It is true that over the last two years at Wigan, our goal has been to stay in the Premier League and it is tough - it has been a bit detrimental to me," he told Sport France.

"Now they [Roberto Martinez and Dave Whelan] know that I want to sign with a bigger club, with bigger goals, who can play in Europe and also help me with France.

"They have opted for a transfer and I hope it will happen under good conditions and that everyone will be happy."

However N'Zogbia's future may not lie in England after he admitted that he did want to stay in Premier League, but would also consider moves to France, Spain or Italy too.

"A big club for me is one that plays in Europe, and which has the goal of winning the title - that may be in England, France, Spain or Italy," he continued.

"It is the Premier League first for me, after that France, Spain or Italy - I have seen them on television and it would be a new challenge."
