The Frenchman was close to a DW Stadium departure in January but ended up remaining with the Latics but now it seems that N'Zogbia will be on his way out after Whelan confirmed he will not stand in the way of the 25-year old.
"There is quite a lot of interest in Zoggy. He has said to me I've enjoyed my time at Wigan but I want to move on to other things," he said.
"He's very proud now of playing for France again and he feels a bigger club would be better for him for selection for France, for which we have to agree and I've said we will not stand in his way.
"If a player comes in saying he's unhappy playing for Wigan Athletic, I want to move - I'm not going to say you can't move.
"I'm going to say okay, we'll put you on the list, try and find you a club, as long as we get the right fee, we're going to let you go."
