Teko Modise has Wigan, Man City, Villa on his trail

Wigan, Manchester City and Aston Villa are chasing Orlando Pirates star Teko Modise.

Modise fears being priced out of the market if Pirates hold out for a £4million fee, he told the Mirror: "I'm a fan of English football and I've got a friend who is playing there in Steven Pienaar at Everton. We talk a lot about it, and if the opportunity comes for me it would be very important.

"For two years now Steven has been telling me to move on from South Africa.

"But it's kind of difficult because I'm playing for a big team and the price tag as well - that was an issue. We'll see what happens but I think it's time to move on.

"It gives you that extra edge to work extra hard when you know there are people who are enquiring about you. I'm confident I have the quality to play in England.

"I can get a move I'll only become a better player."
