Moses rejects Wigan extension

Victor Moses has rejected a new contract offer from Wigan Athletic.

The 21-year old former England youth international, who recently pledged his allegiance to his country of birth Nigeria, is contracted for another year but the Latics were keen to secure his services for the future.

However, Moses’ agent, Tony Finnigan, has confirmed that the former Crystal Palace ace does not want to extend his stay at the DW Stadium.

"An offer was made some months back, turned down, and we were still in negotiations,” said Finnigan.

"In the last week we spoke again and the player has now decided, 'I don't want to extend my contract'.”

He added: "It doesn't mean he doesn't like his manager - he chose Wigan over other clubs.

"(Roberto) Martinez is a tactical genius and an excellent coach, and they are Victor's words.

"He's been playing regularly, he's in form and enjoying his football.

"He has been offered the chance to extend his contract but has said, 'No thank you'."
