Fulham's Bullard cools Wigan return talk

Fulham midfielder Jimmy Bullard has played down talk of a return to Wigan Athletic.

After a successful return to action in the second half of last season following a serious knee injury, Bullard became a key figure in Roy Hodgson's plans at Craven Cottage.

He is now in talks over a contract extension and the 29-year-old admits he knows little about a possible offer to rejoin the Latics.

"It's nice to hear that Wigan would want me back - it shows I'm well thought of," Bullard told the Wigan Observer.

"But it's the first I've heard of it. Wigan is a great club and have got a great manager.

"But my gaffer hasn't said anything to me about it.

"I got a call from a mate when I was on our tour of Korea saying there was something in the papers about me coming back to Wigan, but I know nothing about it.

"I'm in talks at the moment about a new contract. I've got two years to run on my deal and we just thought it was the right time to try and sit down and get a new one sorted.

"Hopefully it will all be sorted out soon."
