Well Dave Whelan has been at it again, I suppose you could say, now it is about the departure of our 'star player' (not quite sure he is yet). We all know that Victor Moses wants a move away from Wigan Athletic, and the club have stood firm that he won't be going until next January, or he signs a new contract.

And again today we have stood firm on that. With Whelan having told the Press that Chelsea have lodged a bid for Victor Moses and has said that it was laughable. Many people have claimed it was £4 million other have said in the region of £10 million. Either way the move is a no go for the time being and that is a good thing for the player, even if he doesn't realise it yet.

I said at the beginning of the summer, why Moses could ruin his career by a move to a bigger club after what you can only call a mediocre season. To be in with any chance of playing for a top four side, the winger needs one more season at the club and that has to be a fantastic one.

There are many examples of players who have left to early from Wigan, and then their careers nose dive till none remembers them having ever played. Moses could be the next Valencia if he stays with the club, and we of course could make a healthy profit.

From what I have heard around Wigan though, it looks like a deal will remain off for Moses for the time being, and only a stupid offer would change the managers and Chairman's plans for the player.

If the player knew what is good for him, he signs a new contract and gets his head down for his best ever season as a professional footballer, then he can look at who is after him, and really rake in the big money.
