Wigan Athletic forward Victor Moses left waiting on new Latics contract

The 20-year old's agent, Tony Finnigan, insists the player is happy at the DW Stadium and keen to agree new terms but has not heard from the club after initial talks
The agent of Wigan Athletic forward Victor Moses has admitted that his client is still waiting to hear from the club following initial discussions over a new contract.

Tony Finnigan has insisted that Moses is happy at the DW Stadium and ready to agree new terms but revealed that the 20-year old had not been contacted about further negotiations for over a month.

"We had a chat with Wigan over a month ago, and we're still waiting for them to get back to us," Finnigan told Wigan Today.

"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 dismissed suggestions that talks had broken down due to Moses' excessive wage demands, and insisted the former Crystal Palace man was not seeking a move away.

"I don't know where that came from, I really don't," he said.

"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."
