Victor Moses, Hugo Rodallega and Chris Kirkland are all on the look out for new contracts to stay with Wigan Athletic. But manager Roberto Martinez said there is no rush for the players contracts to be signed and seeled. The priority for the players and staff is survival in the Premier League.

Is it a bit risky not to sit Rodallega down and get a new contract in front of him, when the player could leave on a free this summer? Could it be that the club will cash in on the player this summer?

Robert was talking to the Wigan Observer and said:

"We're still talking. He's very important to us, and he's still developing as a young man.

"We've got a very good relationship with his agent, who is in Columbia, so it's sometimes difficult to have continuity in our talks.

"We all know he's got the potential to play at any club in world football so we need to enjoy him while he's with us.

"But it's important that we focus on getting a positive result on the pitch and then all of the individual results."

While Victor Mosses who has been a hit with the Latics fans since signing for the club in January 2009, has said he wants his agent to chase the club, so he can focus on helping us out of the bottom three.

Moses told the Observer:

"We're all disappointed with the way things have gone recently, but all I know is I'm happy here, I love the club and I really want to stay.

"The contract is for my agent and the club to sort out. I've told him to get on with it, and come back to me when they're ready for me to sign.

"For the moment, though, all my focus is now on helping Wigan get away from the bottom of the league - I can't be worrying about anything else."
