Wigan Athletic fans are concerned with Dave Whelan's long-term commitment to the club.

The Manchester Evening News says Whelan's decision to sell his controlling stake in Wigan Warriors has raised questions among Wigan fans over his commitment to Latics.

Whelan is opposed to foreign investment and claims many takeovers have not been in the interests of clubs. He has re- affirmed he has no intention of severing his links with Wigan.
