thumbnail Hello,

The Spaniard is attracting interest from Everton and Stoke following the Latics' relegation and could outline his future plans imminently, according to his chairman

Roberto Martinez could reveal his plans for the future on Tuesday afternoon, according to Wigan chairman Dave Whelan.

Martinez has been linked with the managerial vacancies at both Everton and Stoke after impressing at the DW Stadium in his four years in charge, though he was unable to prevent their relegation from the Premier League this season.

However, the Spaniard's ability to cultivate attractive, attacking football, epitomised by Wigan in their shock FA Cup final win over Manchester City, has seen his stock rise despite the disappointment of relegation.

Martinez has taken time since the end of the season to deliberate on his future, delaying a decision that was expected to be made earlier this week.

However, according to Whelan, Martinez now looks set to confirm his intentions on Tuesday.

"I am due to meet Roberto for lunch on Tuesday and we'll announce what is happening after that," the Latics chairman told the Mail on Sunday.

"I can't offer him Premier League football but we are still a club in a strong position to go for promotion next season.

"I'll tell him we can keep any player he wants to."

Martinez was also in demand at the end of last season and reportedly went close to becoming the new Liverpool manager before Brendan Rodgers eventually took the helm at Anfield.

However, it looks as though Wigan's relegation from the Premier League after eight seasons may just force the Spaniard's hand.
