Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce admits he may have to sell Manchester United and Liverpool target Luis Antonio Valencia.

"Valencia is a dying breed," said Bruce. "He's direct, quick and goes past players.

"He has an exceptional future.

"I don't want to lose players like that, but I'm a realist.

"If big clubs are going to come and wave their chequebooks, then it'll be difficult to stand in the boy's way."
