Whelan Says Zaki Will Stay at Wigan Athletic

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has joined the debate about the future of scoring sensation Amr Zaki and states that the Latics have the right to buy the Worlds number 1 ranked striker in January

Whelan told the Daily Star that Latics aren`t worried about the comments of Zamalek chairman Mamdouh Abbas and reiterated that Wigan have the right to buy Zaki, he said:

'We have got the right to buy him and are not worried about the situation'

'There is a deal in place. The fans love him and as far as I'm concerned he is Alan Shearer the second.

'He is built like him. He has the same attributes and he knows where the goal is. When you watched Alan play he was always in the right place at the right time and this lad is the same.

'You just seem to know that he will score. He is powerful and he can smash them in. he is a very clever player.

'Whether that generates interest from big clubs I don't know. But it's a nice problem to have.

'We can do a deal in January. Steve Bruce is a shrewd manager. If he does a deal, all the fine points are sorted out. There are no loose ends.'


Well lets see what happens in January

I don't understand. So do you have a first option or not? Because Zamalek's president said that you don't have the option to make the deal permanent.

According to Whelan Bruce as been very astute and got the deal sorted, but Abbos from Zamalek says not, I am sure we will try and make the deal permanent in January so we will see then, can see it ending up in the courts
