Wigan owner Whelan blasts Chelsea over Moses pursuit

Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan has slammed Chelsea over their pursuit of Victor Moses.

Whelan has claimed Chelsea have made an offer which includes add-ons based on appearances for the former England Under-21 international, who scored six Premier League goals last season.

He told Sky Sports News: "Chelsea have got to make their mind up - yes or no - and at present they're messing about a little bit which is unusual for Chelsea because they're up front if they want someone.

"They would usually go and make a bid and get the player.

"With Victor, Chelsea have come in with offers including payments later, etc.

"It's unusual for Chelsea because they're usually a very straightforward club.

"If they come with the fee, we'll sell him. If they don't, we'll keep him.

"I'd like to keep Victor - I think he'll benefit enormously from spending another season - or two or three seasons - under Roberto Martinez."
