Nigeria: Moses to Quit Wigan

Nigeria winger Victor Moses is ready to quit Wigan Athletic this summer, his agent has disclosed.

Tottenham, Liverpool, Sunderland, Newcastle and QPR are ready to grab the Nigeria youngster as Wigan has reported to have slammed a £10million price tag on the player.

Wigan has been in talks with the 21-year-old about a contract extension, but Sky Sports understands it falls well short of the Nigeria international's expectations.

After helping Wigan escape relegation, Moses is looking to the future and his agent Tony Finnigan has confirmed that he is ready to leave the DW Stadium.

"I think Moses performance and what Wigan has done is tremendous and shows it was the right place for him to go after Palace. But now I think Victor is ready for the next step," Finnigan is quoted as saying.

"He still has lots of improving to do in terms of scoring goals more regularly. But I think that would come if he was surrounded by better players.

"That's what he wants and is why he won't be extending his contract. I can't see Victor changing his mind."
