Wigan boss Martinez: Maloney worth more than the DW!

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez hailed "magnificent" Shaun Maloney after victory at West Bromwich Albion.

Martinez says the Scot is worth a fortune and knows clubs could come calling for him this summer.

The Wigan boss said: "I hope not but it wouldn't surprise me. He's a top player. I would never be surprised if a club with more tradition and bigger power looked at him.

"But that's a compliment to us and I don't want to see Shaun leave. He has been instrumental.

"What's he worth now? The whole stadium!

"He took a little bit of time to get used to the pace of the league. But he's been magnificent."
