N'Zogbia Too Expensive For Birmingham

N'Zogbia Too Expensive For Birmingham


Wigan Athletic appear to have priced Premier League rivals Birmingham City out of any deal to take Charles N`Zogbia from the Latics to St. Andrews with Alex McLeish admitting defeat on his efforts to land the Frenchman.

Birmingham have declared their interest in the 24 year old by making a bid thought to be around £8 million but both Latics boss Roberto Martinez and owner Dave Whelan realise that N`Zogbia`s true valuation is much higher than that.

With Juventus and Marseille also showing interest the Latics look likely to stick to their £10 million plus valuation that they have put on the player.

Speaking to Sky Sports Alex McLeish said: 'That one looks as if it is dead at the moment. I'm not saying totally dead, but it looks like a difficult one, given the asking prices. Whether we can go to that level I'm not so sure, so maybe that's for another day."

Not sure he will, worbo. Would be great to keep him until January and Rodallega. Plus if we get Suazo as well... that's an attack to savour! Our defence is getting shored up but we need a goal scoring midfielder though.

Brentford v Latics - Big Game Preview

A difficult game for the Latics this afternoon as they travel down to Brentford, the Bees have been scoring for fun so far at this campaign on their home turf, but we need to build upon a good win against Wolves on Tuesday and turn around our away form.

The Latics pulled out of the bottom three courtesy of Will Grigg's late, late winner, Grigg was of course signed for the Latics from Brentford, where some say he wasn't given much of a chance under Mark Warburton, so he will be eager to go
