Wigan chairman Whelan tells Chelsea: I don't want to sell Moses

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan admits he doesn't want to sell Victor Moses.

The Nigeria attacker is a target for Chelsea and QPR.

"Roberto Martinez has brought this player on and he needs at least another year with Roberto to become a top player," Whelan told ESPN.

"We have offered him a new contract but it seems the agent, more than the player, wants to move him on - at least that is the impression we are getting.

"It cannot be for the player's good. Victor Moses needs another year or two before moving to a club like Chelsea.

"He needs games and he won't be first choice at Chelsea, I wouldn't have thought.

"We don't need to sell him with 12 months to go on his contract because he is under 24 so wouldn't be going on a free transfer.

"Ideally we would like him to sign a new contract, or a club like Chelsea would have to be realistic."
