Monaco signing Feindouno admits Wigan move was close

Pascal Feindouno admits he rejected a move to Wigan Athletic last month.

Roberto Martinez believed he had got his man when the 29-year-old arrived in England to talk terms, but at the last minute the African ace was lured back to Ligue 1 by Monaco.

On a hectic transfer deadline day, Feindouno told France Football: "It was sorted out just before the end of the transfer window.

"I was in Wigan's changing room when my agent called to tell me that Monaco were interested.

"I just about had time to pack my bags, catch a plane and land in Nice at 11.30pm.

"Twenty minutes later, my six-month contract was completed and faxed to the Federation at the very last minute."
