He told Wigan Today: “I don't think Wigan Athletic should be resigned to losing anybody now.

“We've been taken over by a fantastic ownership group, we have a fantastic stadium, fantastic training ground, fantastic fanbase.

"As someone charged with leading this club forward, we will not be resigned to losing anybody.

“Obviously if some people think their futures would be better served elsewhere, that's up to them, that's for another day.
