Wigan chairman Whelan admits striker signing priority

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan admits a new striker is a priority for the summer market.

Whelan has been disappointed by Marlon King's contribution since his £5million move from Watford in January - "He hasn't really got there yet," the chairman said - and believes that another striker is a necessity, although his main concern is the club's poor attendances.

Wigan's ticket prices are among the lowest in the league, but still supporters choose to stay away. "I have dropped [the prices of] everything and they still don't come - it's really disappointing," he said.
